The pyramid watermelon - pointless, brilliant and Japanse of course

24 July 2009

And so we sally forth to Japan once again – this time those crazy kooks have been fiddle-diddling with God’s very own nature and breeding these pyramid-shaped watermelons.

We don’t know ho many of them they’ve actually got but we do know that they’re only flogging 16 of them – and at only 52,500 yen (about £340) each, they’re not exactly your everyday melon.

In keeping with the pyramid theme, they’ve been branded with King Tut stickers and you’ll feel like a dead, entombed Egyptian pharaoh if you eat one. Possibly. Oh, and for the first commenter who will ask if the girl comes with the watermelon – no, she does not. Although, now that we look more closely at the shape of it…

Thanks Japan! While you’re around, we’ll never feel sad.

    Changing the shape of spherical like fruits / veg actually has a shipping advantage - makes it easier to stack / less likely to get damaged en route. Im not sure genetically mutation is worth that ... but still

    They wrote the song "Jackie Big Tits" Anyhoo, they probably haven't genetically modified these melons. I reckon they've stuck them in a special pyramid casing whilst growing so that the fruit can only grow in one way. Next it'll be square potatoes, flat apples, and cucumbers with balls.
