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.
