Why are melons so costly in Japan? These valuable fruits play an important part in the country's gift-giving tradition; for example, samurai would present tangerines or melons to their shogun as a symbol of appreciation. Farmers now diligently tend to these fruits by hand, adding to their attractiveness. Crown melons are one of the most well-known types and may cost more than $200 per pound.
