The Crimson Banquet (ヒトタマデラマンプク) is a watermelon found in Pikmin 3 after being regurgitated by the Sandbelching Meerslug. It is originally intact; however, it smashes into many chunks upon hitting the ground.
It realistically smashes into pieces of varying size, including a small chunk, which takes a single Pikmin to carry. There are two pieces that take 5 Pikmin to carry, two pieces that take 8 Pikmin to carry and a particularly large piece that requires 15 Pikmin to carry.
If all pieces of this fruit are carried back to Drake, the total amount of juice will equal three full canisters, the maximum total any fruit can give.

"It's huge, super juicy, and filled with tons of seeds to take home and cultivate! How is this thing even real?"

There is a rare, but rather harmful glitch that can occur while retrieving the Crimson Banquet. If the pieces are left overnight in the area just before the Sandbelching Meerslug arena, there is a possibility that one of them will not appear on any of the following days, making it impossible to collect all the fruit.
- It is the only fruit that must be collected in parts to have the parts vary in size and weight.
- Although the part that takes 15 Pikmin to carry appears to be more than half the watermelon, the weight it is clearly less than half the overall weight.
- The Crimson Banquet is one of two fruits in Pikmin 3 that can produce three cups of juice, the other being the Wayward Moon, another fruit dropped by a boss.
- In a 7-day run of the game, this is the only fruit that needs to be collected.
