The season of local greenhouse tomatoes has started in Ukraine

The first wholesale batches of greenhouse tomatoes from local plants entered the Ukrainian market this week, analysts of the EastFruit project report. According to forecasts of market participants, Ukrainian plants will be able to ship the first large batches of tomatoes no earlier than the beginning of May. It should also be noted that in the current season, Ukrainian greenhouse complexes started selling two weeks later than last year.

The warm weather that settled in Ukraine last week significantly accelerated the ripening of local greenhouse vegetables. More and more Ukrainian plants announce the start of a new season for the sale of greenhouse tomatoes. It should be noted that the supply of local tomatoes on the market is relatively small, and the starting price in the segment varies between 70-85 UAH/kg ($1.91-2.32/kg), which is on average 23% cheaper than the first local tomatoes last year.
