The juicy, succulent, slightly heavy melons you wish to wrap around your lips and suck on constantly to get the juices out. I am of course talking about the fruit, which is really popular in Japan and is known to produce the most expensive melons in the world. Case in point, a company wishing to celebrate its 135th anniversary decided to buy two melons for 2 million yen, about 19,800 USD, and sell it as well. I mean come on, worst I pay is like four dollars for a melon and its pretty big already and juicy too. I notice that Japanese melons tend to retain their stem, usually in a T shape, weird to me but normal to the Japanese. I will never buy a melon at that price unless I seriously felt like wasting money.
Here’s a vid from Shinchan that illustrates the deliciousness of the melon and the price that at most is 8000 yen or 67 USD. But Shinchan looked happy eating it so I guess its worth it. Ya right lol.
