The world's most expensive watermelon!

If you've ever wonder what around $4500 tastes like you're in the right place. Though eating forty-five 100 dollar bills might not taste that great, Densuke Watermelons might just come in first place!
Densuke watermelons only grow in Hokkaido, Japan. The rind on the watermelon is visibly darker and the flesh is known to be much sweeter than the regular watermelons sold elsewhere.
Prices for individual Densuke watermelons actually average around US$250, but top quality melons at auction pick up anything from $1000 to $4500, even going as high as $6000 one year!

Auctions every year happen in June and draw quite a crowd, not to mention the amount of yen they pull in!
Experts say that the quality in sweetness and taste is much higher than the other melons in the market and the texture is crunchier. The melons are also limited in numbers which puts them in high demand, and high price.
