Heirloom cantaloupe

I noticed two kinds of cantaloupe at the market last month: a regular cantaloupe and an heirloom cantaloupe distributed by Peacock Produce (a label of the Turlock Fruit Company in California). On a lark, I bought the heirloom melon. It’s fabulous! Rich, and perfumey with a creamy texture.

I’m wondering if this is a Northwest regional delicacy. One of the  few mentions of it I’ve found online is from a Vancouver (BC) food blog, which has an intriguing recipe for a tomato-and-cantaloupe fruit salad.
