SHOPRITE TOMATO @ N2,500 Per Kg! by DeLaRue: 8:22pm On Feb 05, 2016
Went to shoprite this afternoon...and lo and behold, there was imported beefsteak tomato listed at N2,499 per kg!


Roma tomato was N799 per Kilo.


Importing tomato to sell at N2,499 per kilo is ridiculous.


I am sure if Shoprite offers to pay a few Nigerian farmers N850 per Kg, they will invest in greenhouses and produce these large beefsteak
tomatoes.


If any farmer can get things right concerning tomatoes, hmmm....the person has hit a goldmine.

Farmers need to step up their quality. Believe me, nobody will import tomatoes.

l love to visit the fresh produce sections of supermarkets, doing my maths with the price tags as in these tags are pointers of what a farmer would be earning from his/her effort. The beefsteak variety would do well locally...dependent on knowledge.

But my concern is where to get the seed . So many seeds available but are not premium. Also to get an Indeterminate variety of tomato is hard.

On the Issue of greenhouse and alternative planting media, I believe our desire to succeed will lead us to take action with little or no government support.

That's just it. Anyone waiting on govt intervention isn't ready to begin. The thing is not to factor govt support in any part of the production. If govt eventually steps in, it becomes a bonus

Government no send anybody, so we better send ourselves! Anyone who can properly grow the beefsteak variety organically would certainly have a market amongst high end consumers.
