Heart shaped watermelon, great fruit or greatest fruit?

0



Remember back in the day when Japan invented the square watermelon? Well, despite its ability to fit into a shoebox, it wasn’t very romantic. To fix this problem, Japan played god once again and developed a heart-shaped watermelon. No longer will the watermelon be an emotionless piece of fruit, now it will have heart!

This watermelon is grown in Japan’s southernmost island Kyushu, by the farmer Hiroichi Kimura and his wife. They spent three years of their life perfecting its shape, until it was perfect, perfect enough to represent their love for each other. This season only produced 20 heartmelons, sold for mother’s day at the expensive price of 15,750 yen. This is fantastic and everything, but maybe next year they can make some oppai shaped melons for Akihabara. You know they would sell like hot cakes!
