Unlike, other muskmelon varieties that have a signature musky smell, this characteristic is lacking from the Rocky Sweet.

In America, the words muskmelons and cantaloupes are used interchangeably. Although, what we commonly call the cantaloupe is a muskmelon, it is not a "true" cantaloupe. True cantaloupes are rarely found outside of Europe, mainly Italy, and has a hard, deeply ridged, warty outer skin and no patterned netting. The name cantaloupe is said to originated from the city of Cantalupo, Italy where the melons were originally grown.
The first melons were not sweet as we know them today and were probably more similar in flavor to the cucumber. However, as a result of hybridization the first references to sweet, aromatic melons began to appear in the 1600s. Muskmelons are said to have originated in India and brought over to the Americas by Christopher Columbus during his second voyage to the New World. Rocky Sweet melons are best grown in warm climates for the sweetest flavor. Rocky Sweet melons will not continue to ripen once it is off the vine. The melon is said to "slip" (drop its stem) when it is ripe. The best flavor Rocky Sweet melons will not have signs of the stem still attached as any stem will mean that it was picked too early.
