Gifts of Fruit?

With Christmas and New Year's coming up, it is very common to bear gifts when visiting relatives. Probably the most common gift is the fruit box. Most fruit is very expensive in Korea so they are thought of as a great gift who doesn't like to eat fruit? Here are some pictures of how they are displayed in Korea. Did you notice the prices?? 59,000 won at one point was equivalent to $60!

These fruit boxes are also available at most Korean Supermarkets in the US. So next time you visit your friends or relatives, bring them a fruit box!
