Japanese Heart-Shaped Watermelon for Your Lover? Anyone?

 

A Japanese farmer Hiroichi Kimura became the first person in the world who succeeded in making lovely heart-shaped watermelons.

Watermelon, as most of you know, usually has a round shape. But one day, his neighbor said to him that it would be interesting if there was one in the shape of heart, and Mr. Kimura took that into an action.

It’s reported it takes about three years to make a perfect shape. You can buy them in Japan at a price of 15,750 Japanese Yen ($165).

Too pricey? You’d better consider all the efforts Mr. Kimura put in into these beautifully artistic watermelons.

Well done, Kimura-san!
