THE price of toma­toes has re­cently dropped as ex­tra crops have flooded on to the mar­ket.

This fruit is grown all year round and comes from across the coun­try but its sup­ply can be af­fected by wet weather.

Toma­toes need some sun­shine like all of us when bat­tling the win­ter blues and want­ing a good tan.

The darker coloured Ku­mato va­ri­ety is worth a try. It is nice and juicy to eat in a salad or a sand­wich. Give it a go on a ham and cheese toastie.

Other pro­duce to keep an eye on for good buy­ing at the mo­ment in­cludes let­tuce, cauliflower and broc­coli.

How­ever, ba­nanas have been scarce and prices are up. Ba­nanas are the most pop­u­lar fresh pro­duce for Aus­tralian shop­pers and the No.1 seller for gro­cers. The cost of man­darins re­mains OK and all dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties are still read­ily avail­able to en­joy.

TOMA­TOES Cost: About $6.90/kg
