New Zea­land is un­der­going an or­chard crime wave due to a shor­tage of avo­ca­dos. Af­ter two years of low har­vests, the prices of the fruit have sky­ro­cke­ted, rea­ching $3.30 per avo­ca­do in May – a 37 percent in­crease over last year – lea­ving the avo­ca­do-lo­vers des­pe­rate. The si­tua­tion spar­ked a wave of thefts in the coun­try’s or­chards, with a black mar­ket de­ve­lo­ping to sell off the sto­len fruits.
