"Ripe Boyfriend Cultivation Set" Makes Home-Gardening Sexy

Seed kits feature plants anthropomorphized as handsome young men

 

Okay, I thought the “Gum Kare!” and “Kaiji-no-Yu” campaigns were bit strange, but this one's even weirder. A new series of home-gardening kits, known as the “Ripe Boyfriend Cultivation Set”, is designed to encourage people to explore the joys of raising crops by re-imagining various plants as sexy boyfriends.

 

The line of seed kits include:

 

 

Cherry Tomato.

 

 

Arugula.

 

 

Baby Carrot.

 

 

Mint.

 

 

Habanero Pepper.

 

 

Eggplant.

 

 

The idea is that you're supposed to nurture the crops as you would nurture a relationship with a sexy, sensitive guy. In a sense, the plants become your boyfriend.

 

Then, when he is ripe, you devour your boyfriend. Or chop him up and add him to a stew.

 

 

This took a surprisingly dark turn.

 

The Ripe Boyfriend Cultivation Set kits sell for 900 yen ($7.58 US) and are available through online retailers.
