Pricey melons


Watermelons on sale at a major retail store in downtown Seoul on Thursday selling at 26,900 won ($24) a piece. According to the Korea Agro-Fisheries & Food Trade Corporation, the price of a single watermelon on average has risen 35.5 percent compared to a year ago to 25,042 won, or 57.1 percent compared to a month ago, due to rising temperatures that have reduced the size of the harvest while demand is high.
