The wholesale rate of lemons has been reported as Rs 150-160 per kg. Vegetable vendors say that the price increases at the onset of summer due to the increase in demand and decrease in supply.
One vegetable seller in Sector-12 of Noida said that lemons dry up on trees due to the lack of proper irrigation and gradual increase in heat, which finally lead to reduction in their yield. A hike in the prices of other vegetables is also expected.
