Fruits and vegetables are often low-priced and common but there exist rare ones that cost quite a fortune. And they don’t just pop up in your local grocery store. To find those fruits, you’ll have to look far and wide at certain corners of the world. So what are these costly fruits and what makes them expensive?
10. Buddha Shaped Pears
A bizarre fruit that lived up to its name. These pears look exactly like Buddha statue even to the tiniest detail. Xianzhang Hao, a Chinese farmer from Hebei province, made a Buddha mold. Hao then grows the pears into the mold. The expensive price is due to the amount of work that goes into growing the pears and a Chinese myth that eating a Buddha shaped fruit will offer immortality.
