Honeydew, with its smooth cream colored skin, is most commonly known for its sweet green flesh but there is also has a variety with an orange flesh. Whichever variety you choose, it is better in more temperate climates to start honeydew seeds indoors three weeks before transplanting outdoors. Bottom heat from a seedling warmer will aid greatly in germination rates. Also start seeds in a container that can be planted in the soil to reduce disturbance of the roots when transplanting. Before planting outdoors harden off the seedlings by exposing them to the elements in increasing increments for a week. Prepare the soil with compost to give plants the best conditions for growing and mulch around the plant when soil has warmed to retain moisture. As with other melons water evenly until fruit is getting close to ripening and then reduce watering by half to concentrate the sugars in the fruit. Be careful not to stress the plant because if the plant is stressed and then if it gets extra water from rain the fruit could split. Honeydew melons like other vining plants are good companion plants with corn. They can also be grown on trellises but be sure to support the fruit.
