Enjoy your avocados now before they get too expensive!
According to the OC Register, avocado prices are about to increase across the country.
California is the main supplier of avocados in the US, and due to the extreme heatwave, the five year drought, and a loss of acreage devoted to avocado production, this year’s harvest has been pretty bad.
Melissa’s Produce, a company that supplies restaurants in the Southern California area, revealed that while they normally sell a case of avocados for roughly $30 to $40, prices have skyrocketed to $120 a case.
10News also revealed that prices could reach $3 per avocado or higher in some stores!
