Why so cheap? That's like 10 to 20 times less than the price of Tondan or Lakitan

Local price.

Prices vary all time. Mostly every day they sell Tundan from a truck for 30p /kg, at market 40-50p. Bolongan is the cheapest but my fav (I am so cheap). Lakatan 60p. Ok. Lakatan is sweet and a nice flavour but still the green ones win. Yes, bananas is my breakfast.

They're all local price, the question is why does one cost 20 times less than the other two.

Because that's what the buy them for to resell in the local sari sari store. Also very cheap to buy. We try to trade off for mango and avocado. problem is most of ours ripen at the same time. Ours are Lakatan and lots of Saba that my partner eats.

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.

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.

Why do you think there's such a large market for Lakitan considering it costs so much more than the Bungulan? A bunch of Bungulan can be bought for the same price as one single Lakitan. Taste isn't that different, doesn't seem to justify 10x the price.

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.
