    In Poland we pay 6zł for 1kg of apples!!!!! :D :D :D hahaha
    3zł - 1$ ..... 6zł is 2$!!! for 1kg of apples!! :D
    1 kilogram = 2.2 pounds (weight)
    2$ for 2.2 pounds :)
    For me, this price is terrible....

    Well... after watching them buy $140 melons and $150 grapes... these fruits don't seem as expensive as they once seemed to me
    Also the apple being kinda rotten might've affected the quality of its taste?

    Here in America, we have very high quality free-range apples. We feed these apples a corn-free diet and allow them to roam in the open range for at least 12 hours a day before they are tucked to bed. Free-range apples are the more nutritious and delicious way to go.

    Instead of comparing the cheap red strawberry to the special white strawberry in Japan, you would have had a much pleasant taste experience if you did this sort of difference price comparison on "normal fruits". The Japanese are fairly well known to put a lot of resources into getting top quality fruit, while growing the special ones for gifts (not eating).

    Simon tries so hard at sharing food; It's so cringy to watch. In the video about "The Weirdest Korean Pizzas" @5:00 you see that he "feels bad" for not sharing food with Lee... but here they give her trickles or left overs that they don't clearly fancy. For all humane fairness, they could give her an entire slice. In this video about 'Super Expensive Korean Fruit", @ 3:44 you can see him complaining about what she though was a fair sample... much like them. I admire him for trying, but he sucks at it. Simon: I hope you never go hungry someday and see someone give you scraps.

      xniquilador you're so damn sensitive. Ofc they care for all their workers and that's why they would even give a taste. Second of all, how can you judge based on a 7 min vid? Yeah think bout that and rethink that statement.

    I wonder if you tried this again with a healthy/non-bruised apple it would make a difference. I mean obviously that lady didn't give a you-know-what whether or not it was good. Just that she was getting money.

  • Something is happening here but you don't know what

    They don;t look very natural. The best pears iv'e ever eaten was from my grandmothers pear tree.

  • Something is happening here but you don't know what

    That pear isn;t even soft. I don't know are you supposed to eat hard pears? Was it soft and juicy? It looked hard. I eat green pears in NZ and wait till they are soft. They are very sweet and delicious and cheap.

    Think that would be a specialty durian here in Southeast Asia. Supposedly some variants are very special and its yield is very low so it could reach hundreds of dollars as well haha. Taste wise, I don't feel any difference to it and anyway no one should discriminate durians as they are all created equally tasty lol. #durianloversunite

    In the town that I'm from, we have Harry & David, which is basically a fruit/candy/bakery/winery place. You can send loved ones little Christmas boxes with pears, cheese, sausage, crackers, jam, etc. Sometimes there's chocolate or a this log shaped chocolate cake with cream in the middle. Half the town works for this company.
