RETAIL DEMAND FOR GREENHOUSE TOMATOES: DIFFERENTIATED FRESH PRODUCE

Gary Thompson ()

No 21946, 2003 Annual meeting, July 27-30, Montreal, Canada from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Fresh tomatoes are highly differentiated products: greenhouse and on-the-vine tomatoes are the most prominent new kinds of tomatoes. Scanner data were used to estimate a weakly separable, quadratic almost-ideal demand system. Uncompensated elasticities indicate (a) considerable own-price response and (b) substitution of greenhouse and on-the-vine for field-grown tomatoes in several metropolitan areas.
