  • Mexico’s summer crop is maturing slowly and inconsistently
    • Shipments are down more than 50%
    • Fruit must meet certain maturity levels prior to harvest
  • No relief is expected until the Mexican fall crop begins in late September
  • Extreme market conditions will persist for the next eight weeks
