$20 for a piece of fruit

I like me some fruit, but am I willing to pay $20 for one. For the past year I have subscribed to a weekly newsletter for the website Melissa’s. They are the ones that pretty much distribute fruits to all the K-Rogers. If there is a fruit out there, they are the people that have it or will have it when the season hits.

One fruit that I am really wanting to try are Mango Nectarines. This is not the one that cost $20. The Mango Nectarine has the mango flavor with a nectarine texture. This one is not in season yet, but I am keeping my eye on it.

Now for the $20 fruit I have been wanting to try for the past year. The fruit is called Tropical Dragonfruit. The fact is that you can’t just purchase 1, they come in packs of 3 for $48 plus $12.95 for shipping.

The Tropical Dragonfruit is now is season and ready to ship. Should I spend $60 for 3 fruits? What if I don’t like it? If I don’t get it, I will have to wait until next year to have the opportunity again.

I guess I will give it a try and let everyone know what a $20 fruit taste like. Maybe I will even let you try it.

For other fruits that are hard to find go to Melissa’s.
