I think we need to find a way to grow limes at home, in the US or Canada or wherever. Not just for home use, but all the Mexican restaurants who are not able to use them now due to the cost.

A disease wiped out most of the Florida lime groves years ago and they were never replanted. Nearly all limes now come from Mexico. Heavy rains have delayed the harvest. The shortage should be alleviated in a few weeks when they can resume picking the fruit. (I just paid 89 cents apiece for three limes; not too long ago they were five for a dollar at the same store.)

I switched to Bacardi Limon a while ago. Saves on buying limes...

How come I'm not seeing this as a big deal? After airline tickets, hotel and car rental expenses the last thing I would worry about was if a lime cost me a buck! Maybe it's just me but I'm kind of a "Don't sweat the small stuff" kind of person.

I agree that individually, you can deal with paying the going price for limes, but a restaurant that uses cases of limes a day, they have had to switch to lemons. It has affected them in a big way, people want their limes.

Fine! More of a limited supply for the rest of us!

Correct Todd! A T&T without a lime is like a St. Maarten day without sunshine.
