If You Can’t Afford This Fruit, You’ll Be Melon-choly

most expensive watermelon

The Densuke watermelon — commonly known as a black watermelon — is a luxury item. Grown only on the island of Hokkaido, Japan, this gourmet fruit sells in department stores for $200 – $300 apiece.

In 2008 one 17-pound Densuke melon sold at auction for $6,100.

Connoisseurs tell us that the melon is unusually crisp, with a different level of sweetness than the typical melon.
