Tomatoes or love apples are available throughout the year and constitute a major component of Telugu cuisine. In almost all curries, Telugu households use at least one tomato, making it an essential item. On September 1, 2310 quintals of tomatoes were supplied to Hyderabad markets. Around 2711 quintals of tomatoes arrived in vegetable markets, followed by potato and dry onion.


The maximum price quoted for one quintal was Rs 1200, and the minimum was Rs 600. The fresh and juicy vegetable was supplied to the Gudimalkapur wholesale market from Rangareddy, Nizamabad, Andhra Pradesh (Madanapalle), (Anantapur), and neighboring Karnataka. This has brought the price to a maximum of Rs 19 and a minimum of Rs 15 a kilo in retail markets.


But the downside of this supply is that agricultural experts have given a warning that the hybrid variety of tomatoes serves no purpose as they have no health benefits. The organic variety of tomatoes is considered to be good for consumption as they carry the right amount of nutrients and water. On the other hand, hybrid varieties are not particularly desired as they have harmful effects on the human body due to the use of urea and pesticides.


The hybrid varieties give out more produce and are more expensive as the farmers incur costs due to the high price of seeds and usage of pesticides. This means low profits for the farmers and high prices for buyers in the market.


Though neighboring Rangareddy was once the vegetable hub of Telangana state, the production of tomatoes has been directly hit due to urbanization.
