New crop squash regions in the Southeast are bracing for Hurricane Ian this week. West Coast markets are elevated due to tight volume and strong demand.

  • East Coast squash production is transitioning down the coast from North Carolina to Georgia
    • Quality is fair: disease and insect pressure are the primary concerns during pack out
    • Yellow squash is limited due to fewer acres planted
    • Growers are expected to pack early this week in preparation of Hurricane Ian
  • California production is limited in Santa Maria as their season winds down over the next three to four weeks
    • Overall quality is average
    • Yellow squash volume is low
  • Mexican supplies (crossing through Nogales, Arizona) will increase over the next few weeks
  • Expect prices to rise this week with hurricane uncertainty along the East Coast
