In supermarkets here, they have learned how to sell ripe fruits that are nearing to be over-ripe. The fruit is peeled and sliced before packing in styrofoam that is wrapped in cellophane (so the customers can clearly see the sliced fruits). Foremost are pineapple and watermelon. They also do that to cantaloupe and even mangoes. From my evaluation, those sliced fruits in styro packs are way much cheaper if you compute the per kilo cost because they have no more rind nor seeds (in case of the mango). Besides, it is ready to eat unlike the usual fruit that you have to peel and slice. One of our favorite is the durian which costs 200 pesos for half a kilo while the unpacked durian costs 350 per kilo that includes the rind and the stem. So the ready-to-eat durian is just 50 pesos more per kilo. The sales attendant said that a kilo of durian when peeled would amount to less than half a kilo.
