Why is my cantaloup rotting before ripening?

OnceUponABite | Jul 28, 2006 02:20 AM

I bought four cantaloup, because they were on sale.

I left them on the counter, still in the plastic bags but not loosly.

They were still unripe when I bought it, a few days back.

Now they are close to ripe, but two of them have big soft rot spots already.

This has happened before when I didn't leave them in the bag.

Did I just buy bad fruit?
