Mauritius: The price of tomatoes increased sharply by Christmas




The price of one kilo of tomatoes should shortly increase sharply at the approach of Christmas from 20 to 40 rupees currently to about 80 rupees. *
 
The period of drought in Mauritius and water cuts are currently having an impact in their wake of the irrigation of agricultural fields which will result in a substantial increase in the price of tomatoes on the market stalls.
 
Cucumbers and melons are also expected the same rise in from 20 December.
 
* One euro roughly equivalent to 40 rupees
