    Hi guys. I am looking for the best places to buy good quality lemons. Generally I will buy them from somewhere like Sainsburys or Asda. However, do you know where else sells them for better prices for good quality? You could also include other fruit in there too.

    I can't believe that something like lemons, which are imported, will be any better in one store than another. I think you just need to use your eyes and fingers to decide which are best quality. Waitrose are charging 39p for a single lemon currently while the other mainstream stores are charging 30p. I'd be amazed if you put them side by side if there was any difference.


    It might be a bit different with home grown fruits from a local supplier but Farmers Markets are going to be selling imported lemons like any other shop.
