Shortage of lemons in New Zealand

New Zealand’s retail sector is currently facing low availability of lemons, leading to soaring prices where the fruit is still in fact on sale.

January tends to see low domestic production, with most of New Zealand’s lemons coming from the US at this time of the year.
