Price of tomatoes!!!!!

Has anyone else here in Turkey noticed how the price of tomatoes has risen to ridiculous prices? This week in the Alanya area they are about 6TL a kilo! This is far more expensive than they are in the UK. Is there a reason for this? Can someone please enlighten me.

Re: Price of tomatoes!!!!!

As the price of a kilo of tomato has skyrocketed to TL 9 nearly three times as high as they were a month ago due to sharp declines in the harvest caused by tomato leaf miner Tuta Absoluta moths, Turkey, which is the world’s third largest tomato producer, is looking at foreign markets for tomato imports.

Turkey starts tomato imports as prices soar to record highs

Re: Price of tomatoes!!!!!

They are 3 to 3.5 lira per kilo in Manavgat/Side, still double to what they were. I thought maybe they would come down soon, maybe not then!

Re: Price of tomatoes!!!!!

yep we're paying nearly 7TL a kilo, hopefully when the imports hit the shelves the price will come down, I have noticed that other veg is expensive, cucumbers were 3.5 TL a kilo last time I looked, beans 5TL a kilo, mushrooms 4.5TL for 400gram, we are in the transition between summer and winter, can't wait for the cauli, broccoli, sprouts, squash etc to hit the shelves!!

Re: Price of tomatoes!!!!!

Even at 6ytl a kilo, that's still better value than here.

You can buy cheaper but the tomotoes here are no way near as good as Turkish tomatoes.
I noticed that Turkish tomatoes at our local Turkish Continental shop were £6 per kilo, It's all about swings and roundabouts.
