I bet they don’t taste very good.

That was my thought too.

Most of the Japanese vegetables and fruits are much smaller than those we normally find in a US supermarket. But their flavor is much more vibrant and delicious.

So on that same line of thinking... the larger... the less tasty!

Same with mini watermelons here. They are very sweet.

Yes. I’ve never seen one for sale.

They may not sell them overseas.

They are quite a boom here in Japan though.

When they were first made, they used a metal cage with bars around it to force the round melon into a square, but when you took the melon out of the metal cage, you could see slight yellowish lines where the metal bars were.

But then they came out with this transparent polycarbonate box that let's the sun hit all sides and so now you don't have the yellowish lines in them.

They would be easier to slice than round melons.
