Price of lemons sky-high

masha | Aug 3, 2014 07:06 AM

Californians and others who pluck lemons off trees in their backyards can ignore this post (and not rub it in), but to others, has the price of lemons in your area really gone up in recent weeks? It seems like a replay of the lime pricing, which has finally come down (8 for $1 yesterday at the ethnic grocer where I get most of my produce) but lemons have now gotten very expensive. At my ethnic grocer yesterday, they were $1.99/lb. and, for that, were not even very nice. I had planned to buy 2 but could only find one nice one and it would have cost 75 cents so I did not buy it. The local chain supermarket was charging 99 cents apiece. I did find them for 50 cents apiece at TJs yesterday -- not particularly plump but I bought 2.
