Two mangoes auctioned for $2000

Two Mangoes were auctioned in Japan for a princely sum of 200,000 Yen ($ 2000). The reason? They are not just any mangoes as they come from the renowned Miyazaki prefecture in Southern Japan.

Foreigners are often surprised at exhorbant prices of fruits produced locally.
