You might not think of fruit when it comes to dreaming up fancy food (caviar, anyone?), but it turns out there are some seriously extravagant fruits out there, from arty bananas to posh pears.
#1. These Buddha-shaped pears from China will make you immortal when eaten, according to legend.
They’re grown in special moulds to give them their unique shape, and will set you back $8 each.
#2. These are Sekai Ichi Apples, which translates as “World’s number one”. They’re a whopping 15 inches around and weigh up to 2lbs.
They’re considered the most expensive (and biggest!) apples in the world and a single apple costs $21.
#3. Taiyo no Tamago mangoes, which translates to “eggs in the sun”, are egg-shaped mangoes grown in Japan.
The highest price ever paid for a pair of these unusual mangoes is an unbelievable $3,000!
#4. This pineapple might look ordinary, but it was grown in the Lost Gardens of Heligan in the UK and a single one will cost you $1,600.
The pineapples are grown in mud structures filled with rotting manure, which makes the fruit grow super fast and keeps them ripe, and it’s the only garden in the whole of Europe that can grow pineapples.
The most expensive pineapple ever sold from the Lost Gardens of Heligan was an unbelievable $15,000!
#5. This ordinary-looking orange is in fact a Dekopon Citrus, thought to be the sweetest orange in the world, and these mandarins aren’t small — they’re the size of a softball.
Farmers began growing the fruit in 1972 and a pack of 6 will set you back $80!
