A farmer in the town of Tsukigata in Hokkaido, Japan, has grown watermelons that are shaped like pyramids!

The farmer attained this shape by putting the watermelon in a pyramid-shaped plastic casing and hanging it upside down.

Sixteen of the pyramid-shaped watermelons have been shipped to shops across the country, including the Iwataya department store in Fukuoka.

This unique watermelon measures about 25 centimeters high and costs a whopping 52,500 Yen ($560)!

The watermelon on sale at Iwataya for ornamental use will reportedly keep for another month, since it is not ripe.
