If the square watermelon concept still kind of blows your mind, this will straight explode it. A Japanese farmer and his wife have cultivated a heart-shaped watermelon. "It was an act of love for the couple where they wanted the fruit of their labor to symbolize their feelings for each other," according to Weird Asia News. Each fruit, which took three years to perfect, is going for 15,750 yen ($160).
