It’s hard to believe that these Japanese melons are still fetching S$1,590 in an auction…

These melons fetched S$66,150 in last year’s auction. This year, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, they were sold at S$1,590 at the same auction – 40 times lower than last year’s price tag.

Yet, I find it hard to believe that they cost so much. Apparently, the buyer wanted to show his gratitude to the Farmers in Hokkaido for their hard work despite the coronavirus pandemic. It’s a high price for these melons. I Guess it’s a nice gesture for the Farmers.
