I knew Japan was the birthplace of square watermelons
, but the concept of watermelons vaguely shaped like human heads with bulging eyeballs is new to me. PingMag
takes us into the world of strangely shaped watermelon breeding
, where pyramidal watermelons will set you back $650 and the human head-shaped ones may cost you your soul. The heart-shaped cucumbers
are much more accessible at around $2 for one cuke and probably taste more like their normal-shaped counterpart than the molded watermelons.
