(04-10 14:06)

A pair of mangoes grown in southern Japan sold for 300,000 yen (US$3,000), a record price for the fruit's first auction of the season, Kyodo News reported.
The “Taiyo no Tamago'' (Egg of the Sun)-brand mangoes were set to be airlifted from Miyazaki in the far south of the country to a department store in Fukuoka, the agency said.
To qualify as a “Taiyo no Tamago'' mango, each fruit must weigh at least 350 grams and have a high sugar content, according to the Miyazaki Agricultural Economic Federation.—AFP
