In brief: Oral allergy syndrom

Hope i'm answering your question.
Oral allergy syndrome occurs in some persons allergic to birch tree &/or ragweed pollen. When eating certain raw fruits & vegetables - apple, carrot, citrus, melon, others - they feel mouth itching & throat tickling without hives, swelling, or more serious symptoms. Eating the same foods cooked? No symptoms. Your allergist can help you sort this problem.

In brief: Fresh melons too

Oral allergy syndrome (temporary itchy throat and mouth) can happen to people highly allergic to ragweed pollen when they eat watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew melons.
Some will even feel this after eating raw cucumber, squash and zucchini.
