The $600 strawberry

A friend in Japan sent me a photo of a strawberry selling for $600 in Japan.

It's packed in a box, cushioned by Easter basket material, and he says it's just a publicity stunt. People go to look at the $600 strawberry, "gasp,  then buy the reasonable premium strawberries."

I think the max I'd pay for this berry is $10.
