 the question is why

It was you that said one costs 20 time more than the other. I'm sure if i bought Lakitan direct from the farm they wouldn't cost 10 pesos each.

Bought some bananas this morning. Export quality highland Sweetio bananas from the Dole plantations on Mindanao. Mostly they get shipped to Japan but we got some. Buying them was fairly straight-

Wife says the green narnies taste nicer particularly when making halo halo.....

Or.....you could look at it as a win win , the seller has achieved asking price and the buyer is happy with that price .....hence the sale occurred.

This isn't a complicated question, though it seems getting an answer is:

why does one cost ten times the other in the same markets?

Lakitan in our area is more susceptible to pests and diseases, so harder and more costly to grow than the other varieties.

The people have no money, yet there's a large market for the banana that costs ten times more than other banana.

I didn't think one would need an MBA to understand this.

It just makes sense. I don't know why you can't see that. It's obvious.

Explain how a large market for a 10p banana makes sense in a market that already has a 1p banana...in a place where:

personal preference, demand drives prices

They  certainly can, the mystery is why Lakitan is preferred so much that people with no money are willing to pay 10 times more for it. 

how can people with " no money" buy anything at all ?????   Do they buy bananas on credit ?    Perhaps they put them on their Visa card ??

Time to get out and take a survey in the market, because you aren't going to get an answer here that will satisfy your curiosity.

Bought some bananas this morning. Export quality highland Sweetio bananas from the Dole plantations on Mindanao. Mostly they get shipped to Japan but we got some.

Buying them was fairly straight-forward. We gave them money and they gave us the bananas. Somewhat surprisingly there was no debate, discussion, or disagreement surrounding this transaction.

Sounds like another win for the buyer, another loss for the seller. :lol:

Or.....you could look at it as a win win , the seller has achieved asking price and the buyer is happy with that price .....hence the sale occurred.

It sounds good in theory but our Linc banana expert has told us that the people " have no money!"

Isn't that how the French Revolution started ( because the people "had no bread" )
