Two Yubari King melons were sold together for 3 million yen

The Yubari King is a melon farmed in greenhouses in Yūbari, Hokkaido, a small city near Sapporo.

A hybrid of two other cantaloupe cultivars (Earl’s Favourite and Burpee’s “Spicy” Cantaloupe), it’s probably the most expensive fruit in the world

At a Japanese auction in 2008, two were sold together for ¥2.5 million, and in 2016, Konishi Seika, a fruit and vegetable market in Amagasaki, bought a pair at an auction with a winning bid of ¥3 million.
