Pyramid Shaped Watermelons

Yet another cool thing from the land of the rising sun.

Toshimichi Boui (55), a Nara prefecture resident in the furniture
business, is making a name for himself by successfully growing
pyramid-shaped watermelons.

Each melon is cultivated inside a hand-made acrylic box from a
very young age. The vines grow on a wooden trellis so that the
melons can be exposed to full sunlight. This allows them to develop
nice and evenly colored rinds.

The melons are lacking in flavor because they are unable
to fully mature, so Boui has put them on display at the
neighborhood hair salon.


Definately one of the stranger/cooler things I've read this month.
I'd definately buy one of them if I lived there.

Comments, Opinions?
