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.


Choose your melon mainly according to its weight. The heavier it is for its size, the better it will be. Take it firm or slightly soft. The presence of a crack at the base of the peduncle is a sign of optimal ripeness. Note that choosing a melon is a bit of a matter of luck and that from one fruit to another there may be variations.


Ripen your cantaloupe at room temperature. If it's as ripe as you want it, store it in the fridge in the crisper drawer. To prevent him from communicating his odors, put him in a plastic bag or a container. To freeze it, cut the flesh into cubes or balls and put it in an airtight bag.


Cut your cantaloupe in half, lengthwise or crosswise, then remove all of its seeds and slime. Slice and serve or remove the rind to make your desired size.
