Its all about Packaging

The Japanese take great pride in their packaging and the price demonstrates it. They have great presentation in the stores for their apples, grapes...everything. We saw this lovely cantaloupe yesterday! Max was totally hooked, but I didn't cave. It was 1980 Yen. At the current rate of 88Yen to the $ that's $22.50!!!

i think the wrappers are put around the melons/fruit while embryos. the fruit grows into them which expands as they develop. kinda like the pear inside the bottle of liqueur. i think tomato grapes others are also wrapped early.
but .... i don't think it was grown in japan .... recently.
