Usually watermelon is a large fruit, even if a small size watermelon is at least as big as a fist. But now I really saw the smallest watermelon in the world. They are really quite small. They come from South America. Perhaps one day we can see them available in the market.

Wow! They are so cute! But I would prefer having the bigger one. I love eating watermelon and having a small size won't satisfy me.

@youless That's good to know. From time to time, I would also buy watermelon. I like the sweet taste and not so heavy on the stomach.

Oh gosh! This is cool, but I like watermelon too much, I don't think these little ones would do the trick!

You are right. These small watermelon may not taste well.

@youless and even if they did taste like watermelon I'd have to eat way too many to get my fill!

I planted them two years ago just to see, they do not taste like watermelon, more like bitter cucumber.

Bitter cucumber? I will not like to eat them as I don't like bitter food

@youless I can't imagine what I would do with that watermelon. It's a waste of money.

How strange but interesting... Probably hard to cut up... Too bad the picture doesn't show the inside of these miniature watermelon...

I've never seen something this small. I've seen square watermelons but not any of this size. You can just pop the whole thing in your mouth. Curious though how it tastes and if the inside is red or yellow?

Awww, they are so adorable! Do they actually have any edible part in them or it is all just a rind?
