If you’re studying hiragana and katakana, try reading this crate. Use the rikaichan popup dictionary or your favorite reference tool with my transcription below the photo if you need help.
At 7800 yen(about $80 USD) these watermelon aren’t cheap but the novel name and packaging should make for a memorable summer gift. Even if you can’t read the katakana and hiragana, the illustration will tell you that this is in fact not a melon, it’s Godzilla’s egg! Run while you still can!
These are from Hokkaido(北海道）and are distributed by Japan’s biggest agricultural cooperative, JA.
