The Queensland floods are being blamed for a massive increase in the cost of tomatoes, capsicums and cucumber during June.

The latest Statistics New Zealand Food Price Index shows food prices were up 1.4 per cent, led by a 12.2 per cent increase in the fruit and vegetables subgroup.

Statistics New Zealand said the sharp rise in the cost of fruit and vegetables was led by a 56.9 per cent rise in the cost of tomatoes, capsicums (up 43.7 per cent), and cucumber (up 35.6 per cent).
