This one is specially for you.
Inspired by your book 'Know Your Vegetables', I tried clicking a few fruits and vegetables.
This is from the market in Bangalore.
Found green lines near the stem.
I suppose this is typical Linnean species of Cucumis melo  
This fruit is sold in most of the markets of Bangalore, even in Mumbai in the name of  kharbooja
[..., I opined hoping other 'guru' may also answer :) ]
Yes Cucumis melo subsp. melo var. cantalupo, the muskmelon

Melon seen in Bangalore market in Nov,2013.
For correct Species please.
Section showing flesh should help but looks C. melo subsp. cantalupo, muskmelon (cantaloupe here in USA) if flesh is orange yellow
Thanks again.
Sorry I don't have a cross section of the fruit.
