The rumor I heard is that the Mexican cartels are PRODUCING all the limes now in Mexico. Guess their other ventures weren't giving them enough profits?

Surprised they aren't in the Blue Agave business too.

Limes at Le Grand Marche yesterday were US$.86 a piece.
They are small key lime type limes but they don't have much juice in them.
I stopped at a few roadside fruit stands and no one had limes. They get their limes usually from Dominica.
One lady told me even from Dominica the price is too high now.

Many years ago, I switched to lime juice. It's easier and I enjoy the flavor, so for me it's much better.

sometime you can try rolling them on a hard surface kind of smooshing them with your palm before cutting and that will bring forth a little more juice (also brings out the oil in the skins but I've had limes before that even this trick didn't work, just dry dry limes)

You can also throw them into a microwave for about 30 seconds, that usually works.
