In Japan, melons were crazy expensive at the supermarket by my house (¥6000 each).
@codewiz You can't compare fruit prices in Japan with other countries. 😉 I guess, in almost every other country the prices are lower.
Spain: melon > in summer 0,39 € / kg > in winter (now) 1,99 € / kg
To be fair ... Japan has limited space to cultivate fruits, many of them are imported.
