Your refreshingly tasty cantaloupe might get abominable even after protecting it from flies and dust after couple of days due to moisture or intrusion of fungi. So, how to identify the rots among the lot is not a big deal. Just follow few simple steps. Over ripe cantaloupe or those rotten ones can smell musky or like acetone. This is due to ethanol produced from the bacteria thriving on it. The rotten cantaloupe will show yellow outer skin and may come with soft bruises.
