The price of lemons in India has increased dramatically over the last few days. The fruit was available in the market at Rs 2, but it is now being sold for Rs 15. However, farmers are still getting only Rs 2-2.5 per lemon. Normally, the prices of lemons do not go above Rs 80 per kg. Even during the summer season, when the demand for lemon is highest, its prices remain stable. But lemon has broken all the records this season, and in the last two months, the price of lemon has increased 8 to 10-fold.
