This summer, I tried Densuke watermelon for the fist time. It was more than a decades ago when I first knew this brand watermelon. It sold at a souvenir shop in Onuma and cost 5,000 yen. It was a surprising price,because normally a watermelon costs around a thousand yen. Since then, I wanted to try densuke watermelon once.
Finally, I found a densuke watermelon of 2,980 yen and made up my mind to buy one.
I ordered through Coop's home delivery service and it came in a box as you see the above photo. It was really delicious, but the grade was Yu(優). Yu is good, but there are higher grade of Shu(秀). It was so delicious that I was really curious about eating shu densuke.
So, I bought one again.
It was 2,980 yen, too. But it was the end of August and the price dropped luckily.
I didn't understand the difference between yu and shu actually, but both were delicious enough.
How about trying densuke suika next summer? Now it's time to taste Japanese pears and grapes!
