How is this possible?
How can one cucumber from Spain cost more than a kilo bananas from Costa Rica? Bear in mind that I live in Germany, and compared to Costa Rica, Spain is within spitting distance. I'm figuring we're either getting gouged on cucumbers or someone is subsidizing bananas. Could one of the more agriculturally or economically inclined readers clear me up on this?
