UPDATE: Active Cantaloupe & Honeydew Prices

September 12, 2019

Markon First Crop Cantaloupes and Honeydews are limited. Cantaloupe supplies have tightened, pushing prices higher. Honeydew volume is forecast to dip next week.

  • Cantaloupe supplies from California’s San Joaquin Valley are limited due to weather challenges early in the season
  • Honeydew stocks are adequate, but prices are expected to inch up next week
  • Overall quality is good; shelf-life is normal with few issues being reported
  • Prices will ease by late September before the crop transitions to the Arizona/California desert growing region in mid-October
