UPDATE: Asparagus

June 26, 2018

Mexican asparagus supplies are limited, causing prices to rise. Several consecutive days of rain in Central Mexico’s growing regions have reduced availability. Limited Peruvian stocks are helping to meet demand.

  • Markon First Crop Asparagus is sporadic; packer label is being substituted as needed
  • The California, Michigan, and Washington seasons are finished, shifting more demand to Mexico
  • Quality is good: spears are deep green and tips are tight
  • Expect markets to continue climbing over the next 7 to 10 days
