Holy melon! Rare watermelon sells for more than brand new laptop

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.
