Growers in California expect lemon production to make a comeback this year.

A freeze affected production in 2011, especially in desert growing regions. Lemon growers say with better weather conditions and no freezes this year, production for the state is expected to be higher than in average years.

Although prices have been a little low, some growers expect demand for their produce will cause prices to pick up as the season progresses.
