    Re: Fruits in Thailand and their names in Thai

    I was just watching a TV program showing how Japanese farmers grow square-shaped watermelons.
    When still small, the fruit is placed in a square container. As it grows bigger its frame conforms to the configuration of the box.

    But why do they want to produce square watermelons? They say it's because that shape is more convenient to stock in the refrigerator, compared to a round or oblong one. LOL You can trust the Japanese to fiddle with nature to solve such monumental problem as how to save space when keeping food in the refrigerator.

    Square tomatoes too.

    The idea of altering the shape of vegetables is not new . This from George Stephenson-better known for railways.
