Zentsūji Watermelon

Zentsūji is a town in Japan notable for producing square watermelons by growing the fruits in glass boxes and letting them naturally assume the shape of the receptacle.

The square shape is designed to make the melons easier to stack and store, but the square watermelons are often more than double the price of normal ones. Pyramid shaped watermelons have also been developed.
