Japanese Farmer Creates World’s First Heart-Shaped Watermelon

Mr. Kimura from Kumamoto Prefecture has been credited with successfully growing the world’s first heart-shaped watermelon. 

The business of fruit growing is complex and tedious. One Japanese farmer has the process down to an art, quite literally.


Kimura worked for many years growing standard round watermelons but his curiosity was piqued after a neighbor mentioned that it would be interesting to see a watermelon shaped like a heart. 

From that point on, Kimura saw it as a challenge. He immediately began researching how and if it could be done.

Kimura didn’t only focus on the appearance, it had to taste good too. Countless hours of reading helped him learn the differing methods of cultivation along with the best soil conditions, moisture levels and atmospheric temperatures. 

After years of research in addition to trial and error, Kimura finally succeeded. Today, the heart melons are a reality.

They are said to have a crunchy consistency with perfectly sweet juices. When asked about the driving force behind his determination for the heart shaped watermelons, Kimura simply stated “I want my customers to eat something delicious.”
