Square Melons !!!!
« on: September 30, 2007, 01:28:39 AM »
A round watermelon can take up a lot of room in a refrigerator and the
usually round fruit often sits awkwardly on refrigerator shelves. 
Smart Japanese Farmers have forced their watermelons to grow into a square
shape by inserting the melons into square, tempered glass cases while the
fruit is still growing on the vine.









THAT's ME TO THE LEFT JUST 5 YEARS FROM NOW!!!!!!!!

uh, sorry to hit ya, but it's rather old info, at least 5 years. but...i have never seen a rectangular one, probably coz we don't improt them from japan
and i don't believe it has to do with space in the fridge, it's more about the transport space, to get as many as they can on the truck
