A pricy Christmas dinner ahead as vege prices soar – MSN

It’s going to be an expensive Christmas for anyone planning to put on a traditional feed, with butter, kūmara and pumpkin prices skyrocketing to a record high.

The price of potato has also increased but to a lesser level, jumping up 19 percent in the last year, according to Stats NZ.

But it’s a tiny increase compared to other veges. Kūmara has increased 83 percent this year, meaning Kiwis are now paying $8.99 a kilo. Meanwhile pumpkin will set you back $5.78 a kilo, up 176 percent.
