Good tomato pricese
He indicates that the tomato price is very good at the moment. "On October 17 the price for vine tomatoes was 1.35 and the loose tomatoes are around the Euro. That's a considerable price. Cucumbers are also quite expensive and the prices have gone up to 60 cents. The supply of Spanish continues to lag behind a little this week." He says it is striking that there is still a growing demand for special tomatoes. "This is a flourishing trade."
He says the courgettes were very expensive for a long time. "This was mainly to do with the fact that Spain was bothered by the New Delhi virus. They went up to 80 cents each, but the decrease started at the end of last week. The courgette prices were around 35 cents today." He is also positive about the aubergines. "These have had quite considerable prices all summer and are now around a Euro per kilo. The peppers are also going well. Red is around the Euro and yellow and green are up to 1.20- 1.30."
