Heart-shaped watermelons at Sultan Center… for KD99 each!

Posted by Mark

watermelon

Sultan Center are now selling heart-shaped watermelons for a ridiculous price of KD99 each. According to Sultan, only 120 pieces of these heart shaped watermelons exist and 40 were sent to Russia, 40 to Japan and 40 made it to Kuwait. I have no idea who would pay KD99 for a watermelon but they seem to think there are 40 people in Kuwait who would.

Thanks Abeer

    Because Japan, Russia, and Kuwait have a demand for heart shaped watermelons?

    Where was this during Valentine’s Day?! This would sellout in minutes! This is what I call a missed opportunity :/

    I believe year on year, the Kuwaiti market also breaks all manner of records with consumption of the Indian Alphonso mangoes.
    Wholesale retailers at Crawford Market in Mumbai are literally, laughing their way to the bank with record export sales of the fruit to Kuwait most notably, from merchant families in Kuwait. Anyone who knows their mango well would not dare buying it from TSC or any other retailer in Kuwait. Direct orders from wholesalers in India is the only sure shot way of getting a good deal.
    @ Ahmed: the reason why they didnt market the fruit for Valentines’ is eating it would have then be deemed un-Islamic. At least, now you are able to have your heart shaped watermelon and eat it too! :)

  7. Muskmelons- any takers? says:

    You still can have your heart shaped melon for Valentine’s. Many are known to hoard these melons in their deep freezers and the only time you will find them eating it is come February. Pretty neat, no?

    FYI
    How it’s made and not only Heart Shape, look at the website http://www.fruitmould.com/product/heart-shape-watermelon-on-sale

    Well I agree people saying this price for mold shaped watermelon is ridiculous.

  16. Dania says:

    Come on! I can cut heart shaped & star shaped melons for only 1 K.D.! :-)))

  17. Longhorn In Kuwait says:

    Just go to the industrial area, pay a carpenter to make the heart-shaped boxes, grow your own watermelons insid ethem and sell them for half the price. It’s that easy! It’s not rocket science!
