The quadrangular watermelon business started out by chance, after the farmer stumbled upon a watermelon that was trapped between two rocks and was growing into the shape of a cube.However, the growing watermelons proved too strong, cracking the mold Haddad had made. After several tries, Haddad settled on a 25-centimeter plastic mold, held together with 24 screws. After being moved from the soil to the mold, each watermelon is watered for 20 days as it grows into a 6-kilogram cube. The molds are then unscrewed to remove the grown fruit.
