78th Fete du Citron - the 5000 Euro Orange Tree


Alongside all the amazing displays in the Jardin Bioves, you'll find oranges and lemons for sale - and orange and lemon trees too. How about this one for 5000 euros. It's a mature tree and perhaps a rare variety but that's a lotta money...

Dans le Jardin Biovès, à côté de tous les étonnants motifs, vous trouverez des oranges et des citrons destinés à la vente ainsi que des orangers et des citronniers. Que pensez vous de celui-ci pour 5000 euros? C'est un arbre à maturité et peut-être d'une variété rare, mais c'est beaucoup de l'argent...

  4. Wow! Whole Foods is selling Sumo mandarines for $ 2.99 a pound. I saw they at Marukai (Japanese market) for $ 1.99 each. They are delicious! So maybe 5000 euros for a mature tree is the right price?

  7. Beautiful at any price. I remember the first time I bought lemonade at the festival and declined the proffered sugar. Big Mistake.

  8. Are you sure it's a price?! It's really expensive, and I don't think any orange tree is worth so much money!This being said, the first picture gives the desire to bite it and to eat the fruit! :)

  11. Ah, but isn't it glorious that the value of maturity has been recognized, at least in the pricing of this particular tree.
