Is square or heart shaped watermelon tasty?

According to a new report, the fruits are not tasty. Watermelon has many known health benefits, but when you mess with mother nature to make a cubed or heart-shaped watermelon you lost taste.
Why is it done?
According to reporter Tamar Najarian, who originally published this on EmaxHealth.com, which is no longer active:
"...by the time it [square watermelon] is the proper shape, it has not been given the time needed to also mature. As such, one can buy a non-edible square watermelon for nearly $100 from posh upscale supermarkets and use it as decoration or gifts that could last up to a year or more."In Najarian's opinion that makes square watermelons pretty useless, despite the fact that they're produced to make them easier to store.
Heart-shaped watermelon tasty
If you want something different to give as a gift, you could offer a heart-shaped watermelon that actually does taste good. If you're thinking square watermelon- forget it. They are not edible.
Eating square watermelon might be novel, but when it comes to the flavor you're likely to be disappointed. Instead, opt for heart-shaped watermelons that are not only unique but also sweet and tasty.
