UPDATE: Avocados

September 20, 2017

Mexican avocado shipments are increasing into the U.S. Prices will ease by next week; supplies are increasing.

  • The seasons in California and Peru have ended
  • Chilean fruit is now on the market and will ship through February 2018
  • The Mexican summer crop (Flora Loca bloom) has finished and the fall crop (Aventajada and Normal bloom) is ramping up
    • Size is dominated by 48- and 60-count fruit
    • Supplies are predominantly No. 1 grade; No. 2 fruit will be limited at the beginning of the season
  • Prices are beginning to ease as availability improves; expect lower FOB shipping point prices for next week
  • Markon recommends ordering for quick turns and holding on to minimal inventory as markets decline
