Shaping fruit with the use of molds is a centuries old practice popularized in the far East. For 500 years, Chinese farmers meticulously perfected molding fruit over generations through tedious trial and error. Tragically, their work was all but erased during the Cultural Revolution of the 1970’s.
While the fruit molding as a practice waned in China, to the east in Japan, population density and economics demanded its return. As of 2015, Tokyo owns the highest population density of any western nation. It follows that space is vital. Round watermelons are simply not as efficient as boxed or cubed shaped watermelons that can be stacked while in transit from farm to grocery store or while in the consumers’ refrigerator. Economic demand gave birth to the novelty of molding shaped fruits.
Today, square or cubed watermelon can be found in specialty produce markets outside of Japan for premiums from anywhere to $100USD to $800USD in the United States, Russia, the Middle East, and other nations.
