Okay, so it’s been around for years. I’ve heard about it spoken of in awe (oft because of the price of it). I’ve just never seen it, not even once on my month-long trip around Japan. But we walked into a suburban supermarket in HK one day and there it was sitting squarely -pardon the pun – on a pedestal at the entrance. My first real live square watermelon. Check out the price tag! *gulp*
For you hobbyists gardeners who care to try your hand at it, here’s a website for growing your very own square watermelon in your own backyard…. you could make a tidy little profit at the local farmers’ market!!
