Are you fond of big juicy melons? If the answer is yes, then you should consider trying a yubari melon. They come from Hokkaido in northern Japan, and unlike other melons, have orange coloured flesh.
There’s only one problem. They are expensive. And sometimes ridiculously so. A department store had two such melons for sale over the weekend. Retailing at a cool 210,000 yen (1,050 pounds) each!
