NZ broccoli prices varying sharply as wet weather continues

As growers are faced with a poor growing season, making prices fluctuate, the price of a head of broccoli is about the same as a kilogram of potatoes and brown onions. A survey of the price of supermarket staples shows that - in August last year- the price of broccoli was between $2.49 and $2.99 at selected New World, Pak ‘n Save and Countdowns in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

In September and October prices rose to between $2.99 and $4.99 before dropping back down in November. This month prices have continued to rise back up to the $4 mark at an Auckland New World, while Christchurch had the cheapest head on special at $1.99.

A price of a kilogram of potatoes was sitting between $2.79 and $4.99 on January 30, while a kilogram of brown onions was between $3.49 and $3.99.
