Nepal: Veggie prices double in a month

In Kathmandu Valley some vegetables and fruits today cost twice as much as they did a month ago. And some vegetables are ten times more expensive than they were last year.

For example, the price of bitter gourd went up to Rs. 47 per kg on July 9, compared with Rs. 23 a month ago. That`s an increase by 106.52 percent over the period.  Another popular vegetable, cauliflower, saw its price go up by 55.55 percent in one month to Rs. 50 per kg, from Rs. 32. Cabbage saw a marginal increase over the month, of Rs. 5 per kg, but the bigger issue here is how much more expensive the vegetable is than it was last year. Cabbage price this year have gone up by over 900 percent compared to last year.
