This post is for Dave over at AO4 who loves watermelon. We were telling him about some crazy shaped and obseenly priced watermelons on sale here in Japan. Well I was in a very posh fruit shop today (just looking!!) and just happened to see those fruits in question. There were square watermelons, three and four sided pyramid shaped ones, snowman shaped ones and the most ridiculous of all was one like a giant dice with the dots indented into the watermelon. These melons were priceless but after seeing the cost of two mangoes from Okinawa ￥31,500 (US$260, A$295, GBP126) I didn't dare ask about the price of them which I read in a newspaper artitle could be up to ￥25,000. Fruit in general in Japan is on the pricey side but this is taking it all a bit too far! These would make for one very expensive watermelon slushie, Dave!
