Surveyat at the Raleigh Farmer's Market, 2005
29, 2005, personnel from the marketing division of NCDA & CS
held a honeydew taste testing at the Raleigh Farmer's Market in
Raleigh, North Carolina. The
survey consisted of five varieties of honeydew melons. All varieties
were grown at the Cunningham Research Station in Kinston, North
Carolina. People participating in the survey were asked gender,
age, and number in household. They were then asked to rate the five
varieties as to taste, sweetness, and overall ranking. Finally,
they were asked if they had purchased honeydew melons in the past;
and which, if any, of these melons from the test they would purchase.
Here within are the results of the survey.
