Single durian sells for US$48,000 at Thai auction

Recommended Posts

I refuse to believe that it can taste that good. Next year? 3 million baht? Ridiculous!

I like durian a lot.

But not buy the fruit now as the price at the local market has spiked rediculousy high this year.

(It feels like the price has doubled from last year.)

Didn't the Tulip almost become currency it was so valuable at one time in Europe?

Just did a search and it seems the bulbs were traded as futures until the bubble burst.

17th century????

single durian sells for Us$48,000...!WHY?

Why? - Simple! - There are people in this world with more money than sense!  They pay these prices at auctions so other people might think they are important when - in reality - they are nothing but the tallest <deleted> in a crowd of <deleted>!
A classic case of "Look at me! - Look at meee!!!!" b@#sh*t

This entire money-making circus around a simple fruit is obscene. Models parading the spiky things around town on velvet pillows? Get a grip.

No more strange that bog snorkelling or welly wanging in the UK 😎

Total proceeds of 4.5 million baht from the auction will be passed back to the farmers with a slice also being donated to local charities for buying medical equipment for hospitals.

Sounds like a publicity stunt. I mean don't you want to eat some durian now, don't you?
