KEEP an eye out for truss tomatoes this week which are a good buy.
A lot of crops have come on to the market pushing down the price.
This type of tomato is typically grown in glass houses mainly in Victoria and South Australia. The glass houses are built in Holland and sent to Australia in pieces to be put together.
It is a growing industry with truss tomatoes experiencing a surge in popularity in the past couple of years.
Some people say they as sweeter and tastier than field tomatoes.
When it comes to buying tomatoes, you should buy them when they are firm because if the fruit is too soft it will go mushy. Many people enjoy eating very ripe tomatoes, but I prefer them just a little bit underdone.
Other produce that is good value this week include celery, kale, pawpaw and pink lady apples.
