Chinese farmers informed that prices of lemons have sky-rocketed in several provinces of China due to unprecedented demand. The high demands are coming from big cities like Beijing and Shanghai. People are resorting to natural products like foods to get vitamins in order to boost their immunity. According to the reports, lemons used to sell 2 or3 yuan per half kilo, which are now selling at double rate about Rs 6 yuan.

Sales of other fruits including oranges and pears are also soaring on Dingdong Maicai, an e-commerce platform selling fresh produce, according to local media. Canned yellow peaches are another item in demand, as some Chinese believe that the cold and sweet fruit can improve the appetite, especially when you’re sick.
