This is the first time I've tried to grow cantaloupe, and it's been an interesting experience. Recently, I was checking on my vines, and finally found that they are starting to produce the beginnings of fruit. I accidentally broke off a very small fruit (about the size of a walnut), and my brother decided to taste it. I thought he was crazy when he said it tasted like cucumber, but took a nibble myself and sure enough it did taste and smell like cucumber. There are a few more immature fruits growing
on the vine, and they smell very much like cucumber. Is this normal? they are near my cucumber vines, but I don't know that this would affect them. Maybe it's a silly question, but I'm new to gardening, and thought I would ask.
