Below are the details of this expensive fruit worth $1000:
The name of the fruit is Durain.
It is found in Asia and is an Indonesian variety of fruit.
Durian is sold for a very expensive price of $1000.
Durian is apparently being charged at $1000 for a single piece at the island of Java.
What makes it special?
It is sold at such a heavy price tag because of its taste which according to people who can afford it is just so amazing they didn’t regret buying the fruit at this hefty price tag.
The variety that’s sold for $1000 is ‘J-Queen’.
Durain is a common fruit and everyone eats that in Indonesia so, it’s no big deal. The $1000 Durain, on the other hand, is branded as J-Queen Durain which is different from the normal version.
The special version has better taste and is very hard to grow in bulk as well.
The J-Queen Durain is selected by a panel of farmers in a region of central Java because it was deemed to have a special taste and texture, according to Sudarno, the farmer who grew the fruit.
The less the production, the more is the cost.
That’s the rule, isn’t it? These special Durains are very much rare and definitely cannot be grown easily, and hence cost this sum of money. There is only one tree of J-Queen Durain at the moment and it can only be harvested once in 3 years which also produces very less amount of the fruit.
The J-Queen version tastes nutty and buttery.
The fruit is well-balanced between bitter and sweet. It also has a unique shape in that the fruit and seeds are all round instead of oblong. And the flesh around the seeds is also edible which is not the case in normal Durain.
People are in Love with them!
Some people who have eaten them have even made review videos of the fruit and said how much they love it and will like to eat the fruit even more.
You heard pineapple on Pizza but have you heard Durain on a Pizza?
