Name this produce

Recently, I've purchased two things, and in one case I neglected to ask the name, in another I forgot. I'm posting on the Ontario board because these are local produce, but the admin might want to move it.

First, a type of table grape, apparently indiginous to Ontario. It looks like a Concord grape, dark purple, but it's not. The flavour is intensely grapey and sweet, almost honeyed. The berry is slightly smaller than a Concord, about 1cm in diameter, and spherical rather than obloid. Name that grape.

Next up, a melon, a variagated green exterior similar to a typical watermelon, but it's spherical, about 12cm in diameter. The interior flesh is yellow, and the aroma is subtlely floral as well as melony. Name that melon.
