  • Durian - Prices

    “Two durian fruits have sold for nearly US$1,000 each in Indonesia, an eye-watering price that lit up social media and prompted awestruck fans to take selfies with the pungent pair. Fetching Rp 14 million ($990) each, the spiky fruits were displayed in a clear case on red satin and surrounded by fake flowers at a supermarket in Tasikmalaya, a city in West Java province. The price tag was about eight times the local monthly minimum wage.” (source: thejakartapost.com - AFP/Rahmad Suryadi – 2019)
