Blogging from A to Z Challenge - H

The Lil Diva's (10) favorite fruit outside of strawberries (Anyone know what we'll be talking about when we get to S?) is honeydew melon. According to The Cook's Thesaurus, honeydew melon has a green or orange flesh (I didn't know about the latter). These melons are very low in sodium and high in Vitamin C. A large portion of the fruit's calories, however, come from sugar.

We use honeydew melon in fruit salads or eat it alone with breakfast or as an in between meal snack.

I love honeydew myself. Haven't had one in quite a few years though. We grew cantaloupes last year.

Yum! I love honeydew :) I think it is the sweetest of all the melons

Thanks for the comment, ladies. I prefer honeydew to cantaloupe. Definitely a nicer flavor.
