Watermelons grown into various different shapes were spotted on sale yesterday at a market in Jiangsu province yesterday afternoon.
According to Tencent, the watermelons are placed into a mould before entering their most rapid phase of growth. They remain in the moulds for two weeks and then can be sold ten days later.
The watermelons are available in square, triangle, heart and cylindrical shapes.
Compared with the lingerie-clad peach butts or Chairman Mao-shaped gourds, which one you prefer to snack on during summer?
