Can anyone help me identify this asian fruit?

I didnt really knew where I should ask, I have already tried to ask this queston in a major general forum but no one knew there so i thought it would be better to ask here where there is a bigger chance that some one can help me out,

Anyway I have a friend that's currently is studying in east china, and about a week ago when she visit the local fruit market did she bought this fruit (the green one) but forgot to ask what it was.

*Its about the size as a big apple.
*Its probably from east asia since it was bought at a local fruitmarket and not a megastore.
*It got a neutral flavour but trending towards Cantaloupe
*It was soft as a melon but it wa smore like an apple inside.
* And as you can see, it looks like a melon.
* Also it had a weak smell of Cantaloupe.

So does anyone here know what kind of fruit this is?

Thanks in advance.

Maybe its 'luo han guo' or monk fruit, usually used as medicine.

Never mind. Monk Fruit have seeds more like a bitter melon. This looks like some sort of small honeydew to me.
