Japan has found a way to make square watermelons. Unlike other food “enhancements”, such as the creation of seedless watermelon (which requires colchine) or genetically modified homogeneous crops (which makes them more vulnerable to disease), this fad requires only a box and your patience. Due to its shape, the melons are actually easier to stack, store, and ship meaning it can be more efficient to deliver and use less fossil fuels. Now if it were only more affordable: it currently sells for about $82 and only in Japan.
