UPDATE: Asparagus

January 05, 2018

Mexican asparagus supplies are limited, causing prices to rise. Harvesting transitions within the Mexican growing regions and low temperatures have reduced availability. Limited Peruvian stocks are helping to meet demand.

  • Markon First Crop Asparagus is sporadic; packer label is being substituted as needed
  • Industry supplies will be limited until harvesting in Caborca, Mexico is at full speed mid- to late January
  • Quality is good: spears are deep green and tips are tight
  • Expect elevated markets for the next 10 to 14 days
