The most expensive product was Spanish grapes sold at €11.2/kg, while the cheapest were Royal apples (as cheap as €1.50/kg). The supermarket was located in the Kowloon district, prices are converted from the local currency (Hong Kong dollar).

There were no peaches, while nectarines (probably grown in China as they were packaged in Hong Kong) were sold at €2.90 for 4 fruits (600 grams in total). The grapes packaged in Hong Kong were rather affordable, i.e. €2.7 for 730 grams.
Oranges were sold at €2.10 per packet. There was also exotic fruit (which is normal in Hong Kong, they actually consider special what is normal in Europe).
