Watermelons were originally cultivated for their high water content and were stored to be eaten during the dry seasons, not only as a food source, but as a method of storing water. In 1978, a Japanese graphic designer invented the square or cube watermelon. The melons are grown in boxes and take the shape of the container. They were created to fit more compactly inside a refrigerator and to be able to cut more easily, without rolling. Although practicality was in mind when created, the cost of these “fashion” watermelons is prohibitive. Some have sold for up to $200! To retain their cubic shape, they must be harvested before they are ripe, rendering them inedible.
