Bad times for limes. Three for $1 at H-Mart but poor quality and selection. Three for $2 at various Giants, and $1 per lime at the Kensington Safeway. Are you kidding me? At least those looked big and juicy, but still. Crazy prices.
Evidently weather is wreaking havoc on lime crops in Mexico and Brazil. More evidence. On the other hand, maybe the Russians are diverting the best limes to their burgeoning market. Or else some big lime shipments are being held as evidence, as in this case where a truckful of limes bound for New Jersey was found to contain more than $2 million worth of marijuana. The way lime prices are going, I wonder if the cartels would be better off trying to smuggle limes?
