Strawbzilla or strawberry field forever...

Strawbzilla she said; or strawberry fields for ever...

A Japanese farmer has reportedly bred strawberries with a price tag of up to 50,000 Yen ($1067 each), the Mainichi Shimbun newspaper reported recently.

The strawberries measure about 8.5 cm in length and weigh more than 80 grams each. The standard strawberry weighs 28 grams.

The 'super strawberry' farmer, Mikito Okuda, 55 yrs, has been growing the fruit for the last 31 years.

PS. Do you eat them or frame them?
