Markon Updates


October 27, 2020

California strawberry growers continue to work through quality issues related to the recent heatwave. Quality and small size are expected to be challenges for the next seven days.  

  • Markon First Crop Strawberries are available in both plastic and recyclable cardboard clamshells
  • Strawberries are maturing/coloring before they reach full size due to recent high heat, resulting in smaller berries
  • Potential quality challenges include softness, decay, and sunburn (see attached photos)
  • Cold-chain management remains a vital component in maximizing shelf-life
