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. Logistical problems related to Covid-19 have slowed down imports and led to shortages across the country. January tends to see low domestic production, with most of New Zealand’s lemons coming from the US at this time of the year.
