Cubic watermelon

Every once in a while, you run into one of those things that make you go “Mmmmmm”…

I went shopping today and I saw this baby. According to Wikipedia , farmers of the Zentsuji region found a way to grow them, by growing the fruits in glass boxes and letting them naturally assume the shape of the receptacle. The square shape supposedly makes the melons easier to stack and store, but the square watermelons are often more than double the price of normal ones, which are already quite pricy. I wonder if it’s really worth it.
