A single bunch of Japan's Ruby Roman luxury grapes fetched a record $5,500 in this year's first auction.
The brand name grapes are a specialty in Ishikawa prefecture.
They're larger and sweeter than other types of Japanese grapes.
Thirty-four bunches of Ruby Romans were put on auction Saturday.
A wedding hall operator bought the record-breaking bunch, which contained 30 grapes and weighed 800 grams.
He said he was surprised at the higher-than-expected price, but hopes the grapes will make for a very special wedding banquet.
Market officials said this year's Ruby Romans are bigger and fresher than last year.
