Reason for the cost:

Japanese farmers make an effort that is in itself very time taking which is the reason for the high cost of the Taiyo no Tomago mangoes. They wrap each mango in a small net, which lets the sunlight on it evenly. This provides the fruit a uniform, ruby-red colour. The mangoes are not manually picked but are allowed to fall when ready that ensures complete ripeness. The protective net also acts as a cushion for the fruit when it falls from the tree.
