Please click here to view a Markon Live from the Fields video regarding the recent and upcoming quality of lettuce crops out of the Huron, California growing region.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Green Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine are sporadically available in Huron, California; Markon Best Available is being substituted as needed
  • Huron lettuce supplies were affected by a recent heat spike, causing quality challenges such as:
    • Internal burn
    • Insect damage
    • Inconsistent weights
    • Long core/seeder
    • Large ribs/misshapen heads
  • The weather has cooled significantly; growers are expecting better overall quality this week
  • Huron supplies will remain available for another two to three weeks
  • Markon inspectors will continue monitoring quality in Huron as well as other active growing regions such as Salinas, Oxnard, and the upcoming Arizona/California desert region

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for further information.
