It Takes Big Money to Get Big Melons in Russia

How many times here in the Pine Curtain have you passed a guy selling watermelons on the side of the highway? What if they were going for $800? Well, not necessarily “big,” but unique.

According to USA Today the newly rich in Russia have a thing for an unusual watermelon from Japan. So much so, that they are willing to pony up more than $800 for just one. A watermelon. 800 bucks. For fun, here’s a video about them in the Russian language.

According to USA Today:

“Why the cube? To save space in the small refrigerators found in the cramped quarters of most Japanese. Compared with prices in Russia, the melons are a steal at about $80.”

It certainly seems that cubed melons would be easier to handle. But for that kind of money, curves are pretty. Let’s stick with those.
