During halloween, pumpkins are the focus of much of the carving that goes on in America, but in Japan they have a different fruit to work on ... watermelons! Relax and watch as this simple plant is transformed into something artistic and wonderful.
Who knew a watermelon could be anything other than round or oval shaped? You did? I didn't ... ! Another fun thing to do to watermelons in Japan is to form them into shapes like a square. The guy in the video says they sell for upwards of a hundred dollars in the store. Wow!
I wonder if they still have seed spitting contests?
