Does anyone know why the price of lemons has surged over recent months? Bad enough when they were 75-80 cents a piece. Then they stayed the same price but a much smaller, less juicy variety appeared with pockmarked rather than smooth yellow skin. Now they've gone up to $1.21+ EACH - same inferior "count" and quality - with Loblaw's typically having the nerve to post (save! 21 cents off) so preparing us, I am guessing, from a theoretical further price rise to $1.50

What gives? pestilence? price gouging? supine consumers allowing new profit centre?
