Why is Lemon Expensive in India?
The reason behind the high lemon price in India is the poor harvesting of this citrus fruit crop in 4 states which are its highest producers. But that’s not the only reason, growing demand for the soft drink industry, fuel price hikes, and festivals have cut short the supply of lemon.
As a result, people of several parts of India such as Gujarat, Delhi, Bhopal, and Jaipur are forced to pay Rs 350-400 per kg of lemons. While it’s Rs 250 in Lucknow and Raipur. Even online groceries are selling lemons for more than Rs 240.
