Lemon supplies in New Zealand supermarkets in short supply

A number of fruit and vegetables are becoming harder to get their hands on because to shipping delays for imported products. For instance, lemons are in short supply in supermarkets throughout New Zealand because of shipping delays for the out of season fruit, while heavy rains affected the early domestic summer crop.

According to a Countdown spokesperson, lemons were largely out of season and “the summer lemon crops we do have has been heavily impacted by the recent rain. Lemons are a bit more scarce on the shelves than we would like at the moment”.

At a Christchurch Pak ‘n Save a kilogram of lemons cost $10.89, while it was out of stock at a number of Auckland and Wellington stores. Wellington New World was selling lemons for $14.99/kg and at an Auckland Countdown it was $14.
