Even the pickiest eaters don't seem to mind some fruits once in a while. It's no mystery since most fruits have a high sugar content and are deliciously sweet. But let's forget about the typical bananas, Granny Smith apples, and grapes for a little bit. Instead, think more exotic, more rare, and ... a lot more expensive.

The most expensive fruits in the world can command from hundreds to thousands of dollars per unit. Imagine ruby red grapes that cost nearly $900 for a bunch. Or the most perfectly photogenic strawberries that cost around $100 for a mere dozen. The most grown fruit? A pair of Yubari melons that cost a hefty $23,000.

People are willing to pay so much for these exotic fruits due to the rarity of them and the purported unique tastes. Stranger still, people are willing to pay more due to how these fruits look. Square watermelons ($800/each) or Buddha-shaped pears ($9/each), for example, are fruits grown in specialized molds.

Would you pay for a taste of these fruits?
