Square Watermelons: Really, Japan? WTF

In Japan, the art of growing square watermelons takes a lot of time and care, and with only 200-300 grown per year, it’s not that fruitful. Farmers grow them in metal boxes that must be checked multiple times daily. Why, you might ask? In addition to turning heads, the shape was originally thought to make transportation and storage easier. Unfortunately, it also makes the melons inedible.

“This piece of agricultural art is not for food.”

Perhaps Baby¬†could’ve upped her game with one of these.
