Square Japanese watermelons are a unique variety of watermelon that have been cultivated in Japan for many years. They are called “square” because they are grown in square boxes or molds, which gives them their distinct shape. These watermelons are prized for their unique appearance and are often given as gifts or used as decorative centerpieces.
Square Japanese watermelons are grown using a process called “farming art,” in which the melons are grown in square boxes or molds and are carefully shaped as they grow. This process is done by hand, and it requires a great deal of skill and attention to detail. As a result, square Japanese watermelons are quite expensive and are considered a luxury item in Japan.
Despite their unique appearance and high cost, square Japanese watermelons are nutritionally similar to other varieties of watermelon. They are high in water content, as well as vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C and lycopene. Square Japanese watermelons are also low in calories, making them a healthy and refreshing snack.
In addition to their use as a decorative item, square Japanese watermelons are also used in traditional Japanese cuisine. They are often sliced and served as part of a fruit platter, or they may be used to make refreshing drinks or desserts.
