Why is Etrog so expensive?

So, I just read an article about a person claiming to have purchased an Etrog for several thousands of dollars, and later claiming that he actually purchased it “only” about a hundred dollars.

For me, buying a piece of fruit, any fruit, for the price of 100$ sounds extremely excessive, but after google searches it seems that for Etrogim this isn’t uncommon at all, and there’s plenty of google images of people sending a single Etrog in a large package surrounded by styrofoam as if they’re buying an xbox.

So, why is this fruit, which is not that much larger than a lemon from what I’ve seen, so expensive? Is it hard to grow or something?
