Silent Sunday: Pumpkin price shocker

At £21/$34 for a medium-sized pumpkin, I think we’ll borrow my friend B’s brilliant idea of carving watermelons instead – much more fun, anyway, thanks to their red glow!

Possibly the most expensive vegetable ever, this is on sale at our local supermarket. If you carved it, you’d have to make pie too. The good news for those of us in Dubai is I hear pumpkins are much cheaper at Park ‘n’ Shop, Union Co-op and, of course, the fruit & veg market

    Wow! Are they that expensive every year?

    Wow! I’m sure they’re that expensive in Seoul, too, but I haven’t really looked, since no one in my family seems to be very interested in carving one…sob…

  3. At that price, you’d expect to get it expertly carved, decorated, and hand delivered on a gold tray!! 😉
