I have seen some fake limes for close up cup loads, but does anyone make/have fake yellow lemons? ;)
Stay tooned.

In the mall at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas there is a shop called "Home" or "House" or something similar. They sell outstanding fake fruit and vegetables made of some high density rubber. They're perfect: colour, weight, everything. I bought four lemons when I was there and I think the price is about $15 a piece.

Mike Ammar's "Fab Fruit" may be the exact thing you're looking for, Pete. The lemon even smells real! The lime is cool, the potato is great, and the tomatoe is decent.

Mr. Ammar's Fab Fruit's are superb, but remember that they are $20 each. I do a fourth kicker load, and that comes out to $80 for my finals... a little steep, but worth it to a working pro.

I bought fake fruit at Treasure Island for a few bucks each. Most craft or florist supply stores have them. The limes I got were rubber covered foam and are perfect, soft and silent but the lemons I got "talk" a little too much for me (I do practice with them though)

Good luck!
