Mangoes are priced like gold in Japan. During the years that I lived there, mangoes from neighboring Philippines are imported. They still do. However, those that the Japan government import are of inferior quality and small. Yet, it cost about more than US$3.20 apiece. Okinawa Prefecture produce mango-apples. Nice and big fruits but the taste is not like the delicious Philippine mangoes. Japan, high-tech that she is, will never stop to find ways to produce what they do not have. That makes them one of the most admired countries on the face of the earth.
