Price of Lemons and Limes
Hi people, I have been away for a while, but back in the kitchen again. Good to see you.
Questions... What is going on with the price of Lemons?
Out here is Utah, which is not all that far from California by the way... Lemons are in the $0.79-to $0.89 range. 90 cents for a lemon... get real.
While in the bin next to them are Limes... 4, 5, or sometimes 6 for a dollar. That is more normal.
What is going on? IF fuel prices are the culprit then why are limes still "normal"? I did a google and one article- from a questionable source, says water shortage in Mexico... hard to believe that one too. If it was storms in the groves how did they just hit lemons and miss the limes?
Anyone have any facts?
