I’ve been craving for tomatoes lately but hadn’t been able to ease those carving.
Tomatoes can be an indulgence to poor International students
as price is often fixed high and rarely goes down.
At least $6 per kg for off season,
and should be around $ 2 – 4 per kg in season
But clearly this year’s weather hadn’t been good to the crops,
continuous heat waves may have caused tomato supplies to plunge and price remained fairly high despite it’s in season.
I’m surprised to see prices starting to get a little low after we enter Autumn.
Perhaps it’s really about the weather.
These days are cool but still enough sunshines for summer crops to grow.
So finger-crossed for the next few weeks that tomato prices stays low so I could indulge myself with more Italian tomato dishes before completely saying good-bye to this summer crop.
