Amazing Cantaloupe Melon Carvings

Amazing Cantaloupe Melon Carvings

Continuing on my series of Fruit and Vegetable Carvings, I came across some amazing Cantaloupe Melon Carving videos which I just couldn't resist publishing for you in this post. 
Good News about an added feature that I am trying to start with this post is I will publish details about the Fruit or Vegetable that is used for the carvings, including where it originated from, its nutritional value etc, just for the information of the reader. Hope you like this new variation in my posting. 

So lets start with some information about Cantaloupes. 
Cantaloupe refers to a variety of Cucumis melo, a species in the family Cucurbitaceae. Cantaloupes range in weight from 500 g to 5 kg. Originally, cantaloupe referred only to the non-netted, orange-fleshed melons of Europe.
