Kabul residents worried about rising tomato and onion prices

Yesterday, onion, tomato and potato prices have seen a two-fold increase in Kabul, compared to their rates a month ago. Retailers say the recent flash floods in Afghanistan and Pakistan and the export of the vegetables from to Pakistan have caused the price hikes.

Vendors in the Kabul vegetable market confirm the price of per seven kilograms of tomatoes shot up from 100 afs to 350 afs. The same quantity of onions now costs 120 afs, compared to 200 afs a month ago. The value of per seven kilograms of potatoes has surged from 120 afs to 180 afs, causing concerns among Kabul inhabitants..

Ahmad Shah, a resident of the Macro Ryan neighbourhood of Kabul, said: “The onion and tomato season is still on, but their prices have skyrocketed. We don’t know what is happening.”
