A rare pyramid-shaped watermelon on sale in Japan for $555
An unusual pyramid-shaped watermelon has drawn attention from customers in a department store store in Fukuoka. (Mainichi), Japan. The unusual pyramid-shaped watermelon measures about 25 centimeters high and is priced at 52,500 yen ($555). It was grown by a farmer in the town of Tsukigata in Hokkaido, by placing it in a specially-shaped plastic shell and hanging upside down. The watermelon on sale at Iwataya for ornamental use will reportedly keep for another month, since it is not ripe.
Sixteen of the pyramid-shaped watermelons have been shipped to shops across the country, including the Iwataya department store in Fukuoka.
