My cantaloupe tastes like nail polish remover. Anyone?

Jeda | Sep 19, 2006 02:57 PM

I cut open an organic cantaloupe last night, and while it wasn't as soft and ripe as I'd hoped, it was sweet and flavorful... but it tasted strongly like nail polish remover (acetone?). Has this happened to anyone before? I've had some bad hard cantaloupes in my lifetime, but never one that tasted like a chemical! Any thoughts? I had a friend taste it, too, to make sure it wasn't just me. Would this happen because it was stored with chemicals? Or is it because it wasn't quite ready?
