Would you pay anywhere from $3,700 to $10,000 for a rare Densuke Watermelon? Grown only in Japan, these rare watermelons come with a solid black, very smooth skin are sold only via auction. Considering the fact that fresh fruit is really expensive in Japan, if these could be produced in the United States, would the price for them drop immensely?
Normal watermelons sell for around $30 in Japan and the famous square watermelons can go for up to a few hundred dollars.
Even though this may sound like an insane amount of money to spend on some fruit, think about the fact that a Yubari Melon, once sold in Japan for $12,500.00 US.
Now that is some luxurious eating.
