How big can a grape be? According to images posted and shared on Vietnamese social media this week, giant grapes are larger than a chicken's egg.
This variety of surprising proportions comes from the Nagano region, on the island of Honshu, Japan, and its price is as exorbitant as its size: a bunch of these grapes can cost 250 euro and some bunches have even been sold for 450 euro.
Despite their high price, the popularity of these fruits has spread throughout Asia.
25,000 euro for two melons
However, this isn't the only Japanese fruit that only a few people can afford. Two Yubari melons, a highly prized variety in Japan, were sold for a record 3.2 million yen (about 25,000 euro) at an auction in Sapporo.
The astronomical sum exceeds the three million yen achieved two years ago by another pair of melons of this variety.
