A brand-name pair of mangoes from Miyazaki Prefecture fetched 300,000 yen ($2,495) Monday in this season’s first auction at a local wholesale market, setting the same record high as marked last year. Among 157 cases containing two mangoes each auctioned on the day, the highest-priced pair were to be sold at a luxury department store in Fukuoka, the largest city in the Kyushu region in southwestern Japan where Miyazaki is located.

Mangoes of this variety, called “Taiyo no Tamago” (Egg of the Sun), are selected under strict criteria such as weight of more than 350 grams each and a high level of sugar content. This year’s production is expected to be about 1,010 tons and the peak of shipping will be between May and June, according to the Miyazaki Agricultural Economic Federation.
