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