Melon Squared

Square Watermelon

They're big in Japan.


Square watermelons made to grow that shape are given as exotic gifts. They are molded as they grow inside cube-shaped glass boxes.  A company official says the melons are not genetically modified.

Now, a company in Panama is exporting them to the U.S. The first shipment of 120 melons left this week headed for New York.

We can't wait until they're everywhere.

GET IT: $75 per melon. No word yet on where they'll be sold.
