where to buy lemons

Recommended Posts

I was recently forced to buy a lemon at Rimping to finish making some hummus. The price was more than all other ingredients combined, I am going to make hummus again and I would like to avoid the migraine of paying 50 baht for a single lemon, i know they are available sometimes here and there for a much more reasonable price, and I would like to know if anyone has seen them lately at some of the other markets. Thanks

The lemons you find in Makro, Super markets are imported,

you can find cheaper ones in local markets,don't look as

good as imported,but have plenty of juice,and also seem

to be seasonal.

We buy at Mae Hia market when available, if they have then most markets will also.Limes are perhaps a better alternative they are always available.

 

Never understand why lemons are not grown locally.I had a few trees back home in Oz and used to give them away,prolific growth and fruit,minimum maintenace.

 

With so many "fresh' markets around CM why people buy veges and fruit at Rimping,Tops, huge mark ups, beggars belief

They are grown locally,I have several trees in my garden,other people

in my Moo Bahn have them too,they are not the typical lemon shape

more rounded but definitely a variety of Lemon, they are not Limes.

I was talking about Lemons being grown in commercial quantities ie large scale orchards.Before foreigners came to CM in great numbers they might not have been a viable option but they are now.I have planted a lemon tree in our garden but its yet to be producing fruit.Limes for what they are are also not cheap.Getting Thai farmers to look at alternative crops is never easy.You can but lemon trees at Kamtieng Market if anyone is interested

I didn't know that lemon can grow in Thailand's hot weather.

 

Where can I buy the small trees so that I can plant it myself?

I am surprised that Rimping is doing well considering most of their prices are exorbitant.

you can buy young lemon fruit trees at khamthieng  flower market.  It beats me that a tree only 1.5m high can be laden with fruit.

I usually go for a touch up, just to check they are not plastic

Rimping has the snob factor obviously and shoppers there want to be seen.

 

you can likely see me baulking at the prices and negociating on the local fresh food markets (but not looking to be seen)

I often cruise Rimping looking at their buy one, get one free offers.

Their Beston Cheddar at 350bht/kg is about the best price I've found for cheese anywhere in CM.

Their Chabaa fruit juices at 45bht/litre isn't a bad deal either.
