These Japanese white strawberries are one such fruit. As grower Yasuhito Teshima explains in the Great Big Story video below, a packet of White Jewels will set you back around $40.

Apparently they are bred to be bigger and sweeter than traditonal strawberries, and are not to be confused with pineberries, which are akin to white strawberries, but taste of pineapple.
These white strawberries have nothing on these square or heart-shaped watermelons however, which are grown inside special moulds to give them their unique shape.
