For years, Japanese consumers have struggled to fit watermelons into their refrigerators. Japanese farmers have recently solved the problem:
Clever farmers insert the melons into square, tempered glass cases while the fruit is still growing on the vine. Today the watermelons are hand-picked and sadly, only available in Japan....but I guess that's a good thing as these bad boys are expensive....Each melon sells for 10,000 yen, that's equivalent to about $83.
I swear, the Japanese are the most innovative people in the world!
