A box of $12,000 melons, Yubari King melons, was sold at an auction in Japan. The $12,000 Japanese melons were reportedly sold for one million yen or $12,500.

The growing popularity of the $12,000 melons was evident at Amazon.com. Hirt’s, a seller at Amazon is reportedly selling 10 “RARE Yubari King Melon” seeds for $1.95. Some customers however were not satisfied because Yubari King melon seeds did not produce the $12,000 worth of melons.

A reviewe written by I.Blackburn clarified the proble by saying that “These are very soft and sweet melons. They do take up a lot more of your garden than other melons. I will grow them for sure next year.”

In 2008, two Yubari king melons were reportedly sold for over $30,000 and $25,000.

According to Wikipedia, Yubari King is a hybrid of two other cantaloupe cultivars: Earl’s Favourite and Burpee’s “Spicy” Cantaloupe with a scientific name of Cucumis melo L. var. reticulatus Naud. cv. Yubari King.
