Oh the watermelon looks so YUMMY!!!! I miss Japanese fruit! I was stationed in Okinawa - the melons are much cheaper there. I usually found them for 500 yen. I also loved the giant pears... I can find those in the US, but they are so expensive. なしの にぽんわ すきです！
muskrat: Giant pears? How big are they? Are they bigger than niitaka nashi?
Because of the weather, watermelons are rather expensive this summer.
Hiroyuki: Your watermelon looks good. You must live in a warm and sunny area during summertimes, no way we could grow watermelons with our this years cold and so not sunny summer around here. But the mushroom hunters are happy. Mushrooms are growing very good this year.
Hiroyuki-san: Wow! Watermelon is really expensive in Japan! I bought a seedless watermelon from the supermarket...same size as the one pictured in your photo. It was $3 US!
Hiroyuki, congratulations for the tomatoes! They look so delicious and natural. Like the "real", good tomatoes. The sugar content indication will always amaze me. It's perfect for me (I hate oversweet watermelons). I could pay a big price just to be sure it will taste good. I haven't had kimchi for months... I once made it and it wasn't bad actually (here kimchi is extremely expensive and sold in tiny bags).
As usually I have greatly enjoyed watching your grocery buys and dishes.
Thanks everyone for their respective comments.
Sissi, I thought you'd comment on the butter soy sauce flavored popcorn (laugh).
Hiroyuki, I'm sorry I have disappointed you ;-)
I like popcorn, but not as much as delicious tomatoes. Your tomatoes photo made me forget the popcorn! Last year I even had cherry tomatoes on my tiny balcony...
Sissi: The tomatoes and the cherry tomatoes are delicious indeed! I especially like the cherry tomatoes; they look like jewels to me, and they are definitely different from the store-bought kind.
Hiroyuki-san, that's EXACTLY the same kind of pear that I used to eat. I was in the military, and stationed in Okinawa - they always had a lot of them available at every meal.
Anonymous: You are quite welcome. I still often buy that particular brand when I want to buy some snack.
