Only in Japan!


This is probably old news to some of you, but I was very impressed at the logic and effiecient thinking behind this rather fun Japanese innovation (only to be eaten on very special occasions due to the prohibitive price as you might expect): The Square Melon!

This really appeals to me for several reasons; firstly the fruit is not genetically modified or changed in any way, secondly because the fruit can now be packed more efficiently you can transport more of them on fewer lorrys, hence they can have a significant impact on the carbon footprint of your fruit salad!

I think this kind of innovation is not only a bit of fun but could genuinely make a big difference if all melons were grown in this way (or in smaller boxes to bring the price down perhaps).

Whatever next? Straight Bananas?

Onwards & upwards!
