The world’s most expensive ‘square watermelon’
People around the world have been altering the food for many years. The alteration is often done to meet the nutritional demands while sometimes it is also done to achieve visual appeal. After many years of experiments and alteration, many fruits look very different as compared to their centuries-old version.
A perfect example of this is the cubed watermelon. Cubed or square watermelons first emerged in Japan in the late 1970s, but have now become a novelty item in many other parts of the world. Watermelons, of course, don’t naturally grow square and aside from a visual appeal, the only real advantage to a cubed one is that it’s not going to roll off the counter.
Farmers in the Japanese town of Takamatsu began growing strange watermelons about 50 years ago to make their area famous, not round but square like ordinary watermelons. Today, these watermelons have become not only the identity of Japan but are so expensive that the price of such a watermelon can start from $100 (PKR 16,000) to $1,000 (PKR 160,000) approximately. Nevertheless, these watermelons can be decorated in the drawing-room not to be eaten.
Today, their cultivation is not limited to Takamatsu but is being grown and sold online in various parts of Japan. Although they are grown in a natural way, they are very hard and tasteless from the skin to the inside which cannot be eaten in any case.
However, the growers of these “square watermelons” say that the purpose of these watermelons is decoration and decoration while they have nothing to do with food and drink. So they don’t think about it being hard or inedible from the inside.
