Local supermarkets (northern Pennsylvania) usually charge $1.99 each for
them - non-organic. That's retail, obviously. We don't buy them at that
price, but we notice the price because my (English) husband especially
likes them. Now and then, they're on sale for $1 and we will buy one then.
Twelve for $51 at wholesale (even organic) seems awfully high - that's
$4.25 each. Yikes. Do people really have that kind of money to spend on a
cucumber? Even an organic one?
