I bought two peaches today and the cost was.

$6.90!

$5.99/lb wtf? I saw the price but damn. It was even that sweet. White peaches.

Are they suppose to be that expensive?.


I was in Paris some years ago and the street vendor were selling peaches and damn when you bit into it, the juice would run down your face. They were quite substantial in six as well. Haven't been able to find anything remotely as close to that here since.

This was a an Asian place and to be honest I don't know if this genus is grown locally. Could. E imported from lands far away. It was juicy but just not that sweet.

Many grocery stores are selling peaches for 1.88 or 1.99/lb this week. The ones I bought are from the USA; ON wouldn't be ready yet. You overpaid, by far lol. Were they possibly organic?

It’s not local peach season. Of course the prices will be high since they’re imported.

You're talking about France...they don't have to import as much food as we do. Then when they do import, it's through other EU countries, or places where the currency exchange is more favorable such as Africa or Middle East.

so you knew the exorbitant price/lb but still decided to buy and then complain about it after? were you thinking the taste would be so amazing it would justify how much you spent on them?

btw, perfectly ripe donut peaches ftw.
Good, better, best. Never let it rest. 'Til your good is better and your better is best.

Would've been more worth it if they were white nectarines.

So you know the price, buy the fruit and then complain how expensive? WTF, come on.

Wait for Ontario peach season and get some good ripe ones, and buy lots. I don't bother buying any other time.

I usually get them from a stand in Niagara on the lake.
