Honeydew Melon

Honeydew Melon For Your Baby

Honeydew melon is the one that has a smooth light green skin and a light green flesh. It keeps well before you cut it open - and in the refrigerator it keeps for about a week. It is a good fruit to have on hand if you can only shop at a grocery store once a week. If it is ripe and soft, it is an excellent finger food for baby. Keep in mind that, just like cantaloupe, it is pretty much impossible to tell when it is ripe. Just go ahead and cut it open, and hope for the best.
