How much would you pay for a good watermelon?
How about $3,500?
According to Japan’s National Broadcaster NHK, that’s about how much a watermelon sold for at an auction on Tuesday.
It was one of dozens of Densuke watermelons up for auction.
The watermelons are famous for their black skin and sweet flesh – and typically fetch a high price.
They are grown on an island in Northern Japan.
