Me too! I've never heard of this fruit before. It looks so exotic!

Those Japanese seem to love their melons! Two of the world's most expensive foods are Japanese melons!

If it tastes as delicious as it looks, I can understand why it's expensive. 

It's so pretty!

>> Why are Square Watermelons Grown?

And why are square watermelons grown? Two reasons actually. First, the square watermelons are easier to stack, which makes them easier to ship. Second, and perhaps most ingeniously, with space being an issue in crowded areas of Japan, the square watermelon is designed to fit perfectly inside smaller Japanese refrigerators.

And easier to cut!
