Dear Sophialin, In our place Southern State of India called Kerala at present banana is the cheapest. Here in many places one could see a banana plant. It depends also in price variations too in inner villages in cost only 50 paise and in cities it cost 1 rupee (Rupee value for one dollar is around 45 rupees. Other fruits like mango, jackfruit, pineapple are also available according to seasons.

Fruits are cheap in the country, Philippines. I guess Mangoes are cheaper in here too than in other countries? Mandarin Oranges can be bought at about $1 for 5 pieces, i think. 1 big Fuji apple too is priced at $1 for 2 pieces.

chiyosan is right, mangoes here in the Philippines are cheap eapecially during summer. my mom bought mangoes the other day and it cost $1 for 2 kilos, would you believe that? its very cheap during summer but when mangoes is not in season, it will cost you $1 per kilos, not bad, it still cheap compared with other countries. :-)

$1 for 2 kilos,that's indeed cheap.the price of mango is almost double in china,and even thrice for some quality or special ones.

I live here in the Philippines and since we cant grow oranges we get it from countries like yours. Here, the orange is much more expensive as it is around $4 or more to 20 oranges. But I love the Philippine mango and since its summer season and season of Mangoes, its the cheapest to be at this time.

Oranges are really cheap here, too. It's about 3lbs or so for a dollar at my local store. That's also about 20 to 25 oranges. It also depends on the season. I also get bananas at one store for about 40 cents a pound, too. I would say that those are the cheapest fruits in my area right now. Other fruits get cheaper as they come into season.

Kiwi is a fruit from Australia, I think! It is small, green fruit covered by a light brown, fuzzy skin! The fruit has tiny seeds that you eat, they are black soft seeds that make the fruit especially beautiful when it is sliced in a certain way! The fruit is sweet and juicy when it is ripe, soft too!

The fruits here are probably more expensive then other places. A 5lb. bag of oranges is about 4.00 us. Banana's we get for .49 a lb. Lemon's have gone through the ceiling anywhere from .70 to 1.00 each!. It wasn't long ago you could buy 4-1.00. Limes are still cheap 4-1.00

fruit is fairly pricey here in the UK even apples.pears and plums which grow very well here. I suppose at the moment bananas are the cheapest and I am paying around £1/$2 per kilo

the cost of living is fairly high at the moment but don't forget that bananas are imported along with many of our fruit. I paid nearly £3/$6 the other week for a bag of apples admittedly they were quite large apples

It's hard to say which is the cheapest fruit here. I think bananas will be a cheap fruit. I think it's about USD0.15 for 500g bananas.

it used to be bananas at about 25cents a pound you could get quite a few bananas for your dollar - but they have gone up quite a bit the last couple of months... grapes can be had on sale for 99cents a pound I bought strawberries on Saturday for $1.25 a pound and thought that was a great price. Soon price per pound the best buy will be watermelons and tomatoes.
