Consumers know that certain types of fresh produce will sometimes become expensive at certain times of the year, but these grape bunches from Japan are being sold at extremely extravagant prices.
The Ruby Roman grapes are larger than the size of the average grape, coming in at about the same size as a ping pong ball. As such, individual grapes are valued at about $360 each, meaning that a bunch of Ruby Roman grapes from Japan would be sold for about $10,900—or ¥ 1.1 million. Currently, about 46 small batches of these extravagant grapes are being sold thorough a supermarket in Amagasaki in Hyoko Prefecture.
As fruits are often given as gifts in Japan to show one's appreciation and foster strong relationships, there is a market for these luxury grape bunches.
