Not new, I've seen American fruit (oranges, peaches, apricots mostly) in supermarkets for a while. Usually off-season from Chile's production peak, with a fat margin on top. Personally I don't see the point of buying foreign oranges at the supermarket at any time of the year but if some people feel it's ABC1 to be ripped off rather than be seen at the feria, more power to them.

That said it's been a bad year for citrus in Chile, with the cold, look at how expensive lemons have been. 3/4x more than usual.

I once saw grapes imported from the US at Lider.

I thought that was pretty strange...

Sun Pacific have a good thing going with Chile, as they import fruit during our season and export fruit during their season but I agree with others that the price of imported fruit is ridiculous but there seem to be enough people around that are willing to pay.
