I find this interesting, or at least just fun to know.

So here are watermelons - Melons and the pomelo are symbolic of family unity, they hold out the wish that the family will, like the moon, stay round, large, whole, and also united. Families love to share them and many other fruits. That may be why they buy large fruits and share them together.

 

What about cherries and strawberries?
