· The ancient Egyptians regarded the honeydew as sacred and it was only reserved for society’s elite. Famous historical figures who loved the fruit include Cleopatra, Napoleon Bonaparte and Pope Paul II.
· In China, the honeydew is called the Wallace melon. When former U.S. Vice President Henry Wallace visited China in the early 1940’s, he distributed melon seeds to the local farmers; thus, he is said to be the one who first introduced the honeydew to China.
