Bread­sell has picked Glad­stone’s first known cube-shaped wa­ter­melon, which was grown in a per­spex con­tainer.

“It just started as a bit of a joke with my grand­daugh­ters but it has just car­ried on,” Mr Bread­sell said.

“The box I had it in wasn’t as strong as it could be but this was my first one ever.

“Last cou­ple of weeks I started. I tried once be­fore but I couldn’t grow the wa­ter­mel­ons prop­erly.

“They seem to be work­ing this time.”

Mr Bread­sell said he planned to con­tinue the unique form of gar­den­ing as he re­cently ac­quired a heavy-duty square wa­ter­melon mould that would help him grow more.

“You should see the proper box my daugh­ter got me from over­seas – it’s a proper moulded box, it’s a lot stronger,” he said.
