Brazilian tomato farmer Cyro Cury packs tomatoes at his tomato farm in Salto, 100 km (62 miles) west of Sao Paulo April 29, 2013. Prices of the red fruit shot up 122 percent in March from a year earlier, putting it on the cover of two national magazines, spurring reports of tomato trafficking from Argentina and igniting national outrage over how any produce could possibly cost more in the tropics than in, say, frigid Alaska. Cury said the scarcity of tomatoes and record prices this season are mainly due to an outbreak of a deadly fungus, fewer seeds planted as farmers emerge from debt, and the increasing difficulty finding workers.
