Would you pay $30 for 1 strawberry?

Fancy paying $30 for a single strawberry?

Well, apparently there are people who are crazy enough to splurge on fruit.

Expensive overseas fruit is the latest food fad and status symbol in Hong Kong.

Now you can really show that you are truly 'a class above'.

A Malaysian durian was seen going for HK$600 ($77) at Yau Ma Tei fruit market, reports AFP via The New Paper.

Tasmanian cherries were being sold for HK$550 ($99).

At high-end supermarket City Super, a single Japanese strawberry was priced at HK$168 ($30).

Apparently there are people like this one guy who said he spends around HD$2,000 ($360) on imported fruit every month for his family of four.
