Nutritional Benefits: 

Sweet & healthy satisfaction

Earthbound Farm Organic Honeydew Melon is an excellent source of vitamin C, which promotes wound healing, supports a healthy immune system, and helps keep skin healthy. At only 48 calories per serving and with a water content of nearly 90%, honeydew is a filling snack and a natural, guilt-free way to satisfy a sweet tooth.

The vitamin C in this melon also has antioxidant properties that, as part of a healthy diet, may play a role in reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases. Additionally, foods that contain vitamin C pair well with produce that contains iron; vitamin C helps the body absorb plant-based iron. Try adding a sweet element to a spinach salad by tossing in some balls of fresh honeydew melon — it’s a tasty way to maximize your nutrient intake!
 

Why choose organic honeydew melon?

Honeydew melon is #33 on the Environmental Working Group's “Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides,” a list of produce that carries the most pesticide residues when grown conventionally. Choosing organic melon makes sense — especially for children, whose growing bodies are so much more susceptible to environmental chemical exposures than adults’.

At Earthbound Farm, we grow our organic melons without toxic synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, using sustainable farming methods that protect the environment and help keep pesticides out of our soil, air, water and food supply. Organic food is the healthiest choice for people and the planet — and if there’s any way to make honeydew taste even better, we think organic is it!
