Understanding food allergy test

I had a skin allergy test yesterday and was told I have severe allergies.   Of course every food is not on the list which leaves me wondering about lots of foods.  For example, I am allergic to cantaloupe.  Watermelon wasn't on the list.  So am I probably allergic to it as well.  Cucumbers and green peppers weren't on the list at all either.  I can't have many beans but I can have string beans.  Where does leave pinto beans?  Maybe I'm gonna get more details when blood work comes back in a week.  Right now ion just confused about foods that I guess aren't tested for.  Maybe I'm supposed to look at families of foods???  Any advice will be appreciated.  Thanks

Fruits like apple, pear, cherry, peach, and plum, and cucumber, melon, watermelon, zucchini, pumpkin have a tendency to cause allergy. You can go for allergy test from another lab , preferably through teddy can as it gives discounts for different list of allergens.
