Did you know that the melon called cantaloupe in Quebec is actually not the real cantaloupe from Italy? The one produced in Quebec and throughout North America is the muskmelon (Cucumis melo var. reticulatus): its bark is covered with sinuous lines reminiscent of embroidery in relief and has no ribs. Cantaloupe melon (C. melo var. cantalupensis) grown in Europe has warty or smooth skin and marked ribs. Both varieties, however, have orange, sweet flesh.

Did you know that when it passes a certain stage of ripening, the cantaloupe produces and accumulates ethanol? Indeed, seemingly harmless ethanol (alcohol) not only alters the taste of melon but could be dangerous for people allergic to this substance. A few cases of anaphylactic reaction have been reported in the scientific literature, even if they remain anecdotal.
