Walking through Shibuya Station yesterday, the fruit stand, Hayashi Fruits in the Tokyu Department Store, caught my eye. I had seen a square watermelon before, but not a triangular one. How about a heart-shaped one? Yes, there they were, on display next to the huge box of a watermelon.
I told the Hayashi Fruit salesperson that the shapely watermelons were very cute, and he said that they are, but that they aren't very tasty. It sure made me want to buy them! Not that I ever would, mind you, not even for the novelty of them. And especially not at those prices! At today's rate, that's $104 for the watermelon pyramid and $194 for the cube!
But how about this one? It's dynamite!
