Weighing 8-kilogram, the royal “Densuke” watermelon, full-grown at the northern island of Hokkaido lately got auctioned for 650,000 yen ($6,100) in Japan, making it the world’s most expensive watermelon ever sold. A nautical products dealer inked a neat deal with this black outsized watermelon, as an attempt to prop up local cultivation. The country is known for owning pricey melons and is often given as gifts.
Exemplifying this was another auction of “Yubari” cantaloupe melons that was held last month and generated a jaw-dropping price of $23,500. It was the first fortunate one out of the total 65 produced during season’s initial harvest.
