A man in Japan bought a bunch of Ruby Roman grapes at auction Thursday for a price tag of nearly $11,000 dollars.
Ruby Roman variety grapes are a highly sought after breed, descended from Fujiminori variety grapes, grown in Ishikawa prefecture. This year’s ping pong ball sized grapes went for 1.1 million yen, or about $10,900, or, roughly $350 a grape, according to the Guardian.
“These are truly Ruby Roman gems,” said bid-winner Takamaru Konish, the auction winner. “We will display them at our store before giving our customers a sample taste.”
