Yes, it really is that colour, believe it or not. I saw it in all its yellow, knobbly glory at the fruit shop and couldn't resist bringing it home. I'm looking forward to cutting into it - I'm half expecting to find that it's not a honeydew at all, but some strange seedy lumpy thing. Just imagine the colour contrast if it turns out to really be a honeydew - bright yellow rind against cool green melon. Hopefully I'll get a picture before we eat it all.
