Tomatoe prices to increase.
Frigid Flordia winter has been bad news for tomato lovers and may soon take a price increase on your sandwich.
The Sunshine State produces the largest fresh tomato crop in the country, but growers say 70% of their tomato crop has been destroyed by cold weather. This means restaurant owners are paying a lot more for tomatoes and eventually so will you. Tomato prices are expected to drop in April when farmers in Southern Florida bring in a new crop.
