Tomato rates more than double in a month

Hitting hard the consumer already reeling under high food prices, retail prices of tomato have jumped to around Rs 45 a kg in New Delhi within a month on soaring demand after the marriage season coupled with low supply.

The wholesale rates of tomato, a key ingredient in many an Indian dish, have also risen during the period but the hike is not as sharp as retail rates.

Retail prices of tomato are ruling at over Rs 45 a kg, against Rs 18 a kg a month earlier.

In the wholesale market of Azadpur, tomato was available at Rs 24.80 per kg on Saturday last week, against Rs 12.86 a kg on October 26, according to data by the Delhi Agricultural Marketing Board.
