How to Pick the Perfect Honeydew Check the weight - the melon should feel heavier than it looks. A ripe honeydew has a nice even yellow hue to it - there should not be any green. If you press on its stem, it should be firm with a slight amount of give. How to Cut the Melon Start with a washed melon and cut off both ends. Stand it up on one of the cut ends and peel the melon using a thin bladed knife. Follow the shape of the fruit and remove the rind (including the green part) from the flesh. Cut the melon in half to expose the seeds and scoop out the seeds using a spoon. If the melon is ripe enough, the seeds will fall right out once you loosen them around the edges. Slice one half of the melon long-wise into 2 strips. Turn it a quarter of a way and slice into 2" pieces for a perfectly diced melon. Repeat with the other half.
