Apples in the shops are a whopping 36 percent more expensive than a year ago, and fruits in general currently cost 10% more than last July, reports The Telegraph: "Fruit and veg push inflation higher". UK food price inflation as a whole rose by 4.4% pa, but bear in mind that this figure also includes "Non-alcoholic Beverages" (sugary pop, coffee, teas etc). Drink a bit less fruit tea, and you may be able to afford some actual fruit :) The reason for the high cost of fruit, is not the shortage of pickers or the cost of fuel, but the weather.
