Blocks on exports of Turkey’s lemons amid COVID-19

The Turkish government has subjected lemons to export control due to the booming domestic demand due to the coronavirus pandemic. The restriction will continue until the end of August. In Turkey, lemons are mainly used for the production of cologne, which is used as an alcohol-based disinfectant in many aspects of life. They are also being consumed to boost immunity, thanks to their high content of Vitamin C. The booming demand has led to a sharp spike in lemon prices since the start of the outbreak.
