Interesting article on luxury fruit in Japan! Apparently, the Japanese give these hundred- and thousand-dollar fruits as gifts. I have a memory of the best-tasting peaches I’ve ever had. I didn’t pick them myself or get them from a roadside stand in Georgia or South Carolina. No, I got them from a street stand on a corner near Union Square. And they were cheap!
