the square watermelons are pretty. who would have thought to make them square just by placing them in a box?

I bet they'd be a lot easier to plug than a round one, ya wouldn't have to worry about it rolling over and spilling out all the booze. :rofl:

Is that called thinking outside or inside the box?

Disneyworld has done this with vegetables for over a decade. They maniplulate the shape to make veggies in the shapes they want them. They've made Mickey Mouse shaped pumpkins as well as Mickey Mouse shaped cucumbers. They just put them in a plastic mold when they are "young" and they grow into those shapes. We got to see them doing this when we went on the "Behind the Seeds" tour at Epcot a few years ago. If you eat at the Garden Grill, many of their salad makings are from their own gardens and you get slices of Mickey cucumbers!

I can't imagine how expensive those would be in Japan nowadays. I left Okinawa, Japan in 1997 and even then 'in a regular grocery store' apples were $5.00 each, cantaloupes were $40-25.00 (40.00 when they were first ripe) now.. they did have a nice bow on them though..

SMALL TINY cannon ball sized watermelons were $50.00..
And, I did see a few square watermelons at that time.. but, they were more than the $50.00

Well, that certainly is interesting. Pretty cool! I wonder what other fruits that could be done with.

A few years ago, some seed companies had molds that you could buy and put over young squash, or whatever. As the squash grew, it would grow into the mold, and then you could take the mold off and have a squash shaped like a face. They were reusable. I haven't seen any in years.
