Fruit farmers in Ehime Prefecture, Japan have created pentagon-shaped oranges which they named "Gokakukei Iyokan". A mix of mandarians and oranges; "Iyokan", sometimes called a "Japanese Summer Orange", and "gokakukei" which means "pentagon."
But this special fruits's name is a pun. You see, Japanese word "goukaku" means "successfully passing an exam", and "ii yokan" means a "good premonition." Combined, they'll be written like "goukaku ii yokan" (sounds like "gokakukei iyokan"). It means "to have a good premonition of exam success." Thus, this citrus fruit is the best way to say, "Good luck on your school exams!"
Next month, 300 of them are going on sale at a local festival, reports Asahi. Courtesy of Asahi News and website Pouch, here are more photos of the pentagon-shaped fruit as well as how they are grown into that pentagon shape. The farmers have been working on this for years.
