#8 Watermelon
No, not just an ordinary watermelon but a square shaped watermelon. The rounded fruit now has its square counterpart in Japan. Round shape was a struggle for consumers to fit in their bags and was difficult to slice since it rolled. The farmer from Zentsuji, in Kagawa prefecture had a clever idea of growing watermelons in square-shaped glass containers. The fruit would assume then the shape of the container.
