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
