Fruit prices in a Hong Kong supermarket

While attending Asia Fruit Logistica, FreshPlaza took the chance to visit a store in Hong Kong. The most expensive product was Spanish grapes sold at €11.2/kg, while the cheapest were Royal apples (as cheap as €1.50/kg). The supermarket was located in the Kowloon district, prices are converted from the local currency (Hong Kong dollar).  

Spanish grapes sold at €2.88/250 grams (24.9 HK dollars) 

There was a wide variety of apples available, including Modì apples grown in Australia sold at €2.4/kg, Envy from New Zealand at €3.3/kg and red apples from the US at €0.56 each.

Oranges were sold at €2.10 per packet. There was also exotic fruit (which is normal in Hong Kong, they actually consider special what is normal in Europe).
