First it was square melons, but then some creative folks in Yamagata Prefecture made our cucumbers into hearts and changed our salads forever! Who says greens can't be interesting?!
If you grow cucumbers at home, or want to give the perfect gift to a gardener friend, the Heart-Shaped Cucumber Molds will let you grow your young cucumbers into perfect heart shapes over time (and every time). Have unique salads for dinner parties and special occasions, or use your imagination to create something else entirely!
It's easy to use too: Just insert the pins into the mold to hold it together in the right shape. Then insert a baby cucumber into the mold when it's about the size of a little finger, using the hooks and a net to hold it up. As it grows up it will be shaped into a heart. Once it's reached about 70-80% up the mold, release it and harvest your delicious crop!
The Heart-Shaped Cucumber Mold Set features:
- Set of 3 pieces
- Size: 3 x 25cm (1.2 x 9.8")
- Instructions (Japanese, but self-explanatory)
