Burgenland tomatoes to arrive on the shelves somewhat later

Austria: "Due to high gas prices, we have to plant a little later to be able to save a bit"

Rising energy costs are putting pressure on the wallets of Burgenland vegetable farms as well. Those farms that heat their greenhouses are particularly worried. Some 15 farms in Burgenland are affected. The consequence: domestic vegetables will be arriving later on the shelves come spring. "Gas prices have become significantly higher. We, therefore, unfortunately, have to plant a little later in order to be able to save a bit," bell pepper grower Hans Thell told ORF.

"Heated crops such as cucumbers, tomatoes, and peppers from Austria itself will be available about a month later. And next year in autumn, the season for domestic vegetables will also end earlier," added Gerald Raser of the Neusiedl am See Chamber of Agriculture.
