Suniel Shetty on today’s tomato prices

Earlier this week,Suniel Shetty expressed his concern over the rising price of tomatoes in India, and said he has been forced to cut down on tomatoes. Suniel, who is also a restaurateur, also said he grows various fruits and vegetables at his Khandala farmhouse.

Elaborating on why he chooses to buy fresh produce from apps, he had told Aaj Tak that one can be shocked looking at the prices of vegetables and fruits on the apps. He added that the apps have much lower prices than physical shops and markets. He had said, “I am also a restaurateur, and I’ve always bargained for best prices. But with the rising prices of tomatoes, people have had to compromise on taste and quality. I have too (compromised).”

Rising tomato prices

The ideal period for tomato cultivation in Maharashtra is April. Due to heavy rains during the first week of May in Maharashtra, farmers faced major crop loss, resulting in high prices, as per reports. In the retail market in Maharashtra, tomatoes are reportedly being sold at 160 and 190 across various locations in the state.
