Have you ever found some oddly shaped vegetable in the supermarket? Sometimes fruits and vegetables come in funny shapes naturally, sometimes they’re specifically grown that way.

Funny Watermelon

From PingMag:

There’s one thing you just have to enjoy in Japanese summer, and that are watermelons. Imagine mom saying “Kids, the watermelon is ready!” And “I’m coming, mom!” A big round watermelon being cut open on a table… BUT! Japanese watermelons are no longer round! Today PingMag shows off our favourite watermelon collection and gives a bit of insight into plant breeding.

Another vegatable that comes in different shapes is the cucumber. It is put into a heart-shaped container and allowed to grow, creating the Heart stick.
