Today’s Japan Photo: Square Watermelons

Today's Japan Photo: Square Watermelons

For Today’s Japan Photo, we take a look at these interesting square watermelons, which are born from the ingenious ideas from Japanese farmers.

Watermelons are huge and can take up alot of space in the refrigerator. Japanese farmers solved this problem by growing the melons in square, tempered glass cases while the fruit is still growing on the vine.

While they can now fit into refrigerators, Japanese folks are still not buying them because each usually cost around 10,000 yen, really expensive!

    I’d rather buy a watermelon that expensive because it tastes REALLY good, not because of saving space…
