Some Bananas In Japan Paid 10 Grand For The Box Of Oranges
How much do you love fruits? Or how severe your Vit C deficiency is? Hopefully less than a guy in Japan had at the moment when he paid 100 bucks per orange at an auction. Who does that? A happy customer keeps his name a secret, so no one knows who went being nuts so far, as the sum in Japanese yen is even more impressive — it comprises 1 000 000.
Pricey Nishiuva oranges are produced by Hinomaru brand. It’s high season for them right now up till the beginning of January, so you can only imagine how much they could cost off-season. The producer describes the flavor of the fruit as an ideal balance of sweet and tangy notes. These oranges are said to be seedless and easily peeled. How lazy a guy should be to pay over for cleanability. It seems cheaper to hire someone for 100$ an hour and ask to peel the whole crate.
Ad states that these Satsuma mandarin oranges are packed in some crate made of paulownia, may be in a rich men’s world it’s a big deal worth paying.
But if you think it’s like the highest price for a fuit, stay strong, there’s more to come! Five months ago in Japan mandarin oranges were sold on the price which is rather easy to remember — 1000$ per orange. One could actually get a crate of oranges paying just an annual salary of a school teacher. And these oranges are not even top notch, farms produce hundreds of thousands of tons every year.
Next time your wife blames you for silly purchases tell her that somewhere in the world there’s a guy who paid a grand per orange!
