This unique melon is grown exclusively in Japan and is known as "Yubari King". It is believed to be the most precious fruit in the world, cultivated only in the city of Yubari on the Japanese island of Hokkaido. The city's climate is ideally suited for the cultivation of Yubari watermelon, which is why it gets its name.

The extraordinary sweetness and flavor of Yubari King are due to the huge temperature fluctuations between day and night in Yubari City. It is said that the greater the difference in temperature, the sweeter and tastier the melon will be. What sets Yubari King apart is that it is not just sold; It is auctioned. In 2022, a Yubari King fetched a staggering price of Rs 20 lakh at an auction, and last year, it was sold for Rs 18 lakh.
