History

Some food historians believe that cultivation of cantaloupes date back to the Biblical period in Egypt and Greece, while others believe it was first cultivated in Persia, Armenia, and India. This fruit, which was depicted in Egyptian paintings dating back to the Biblical period was identified as a melon, although there was no distinction in ancient times between the netted and non-netted variety of cantaloupes. In ancient times, the Romans got their supply of melons from Armenia. "Apicius", a collection of ancient Roman recipes indicated the use of melons. The size of these fruits was small as compared to the ones we see today
