Japan Premium Hokkaido Tohma Densuke Suika (Jumbo, 13kg)
This product is currently sold out.
The world's most expensive watermelon!
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.
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.
Densuke suika sell at auction in Japan for exorbitant prices, typically anywhere from $2000-5000 USD, per melon.
Those big prices are only paid for the first few lots of the annual crop yield. They are highly valued for their unique, sweet taste.
