Car-Shaped Watermelons

(Can Tho City, Vietnam)
Since they first appeared last year in the Mekong Delta City of Can Tho, watermelons in the shape of a car have drawn so much attention from the public that their price has jacked sky high, yet they sell like hotcakes.

These unique watermelons were grown by 59-year-old farmer Tran Thanh Liem, a resident of Binh Thuy Ward in Binh Thuy District in Can Tho City.

He is also well-known as the creator of gold-ingot-shaped watermelons, which were trademarked in 2010 by the Ministry of Science and Technology as well as the National Office of Intellectual Property of Vietnam.
I'd like to try one.
