Heart-shaped watermelon
Dr Chiranjit Parmar

A Japanese farmer, Hiroichi Kimura from Kumamoto Prefecture, has grown a heart-shaped watermelon. It reported to be the first heart-shaped watermelon ever produced. Kimura could do it after years of hard work. Kimura’s watermelons not only have a unique shape but also have a crunchy consistency and sweet juice. These watermelons sell fast in the supermarkets and also command an attractive premium.
