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.

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
