UPDATE: Avocados

September 27, 2017

Mexico’s fall avocado crop is ramping up; prices are falling sharply.

  • Chilean shipments have been arriving more frequently than normal, but are expected to decrease over the next several weeks as the Mexican season ramps up
  • Supplies from Mexico’s fall crop are increasing weekly and expected to reach ample volume by mid-October
    • Current supplies are dominated by 60-count and smaller sizes
    • Oil content remains relatively low; fruit requires longer ripening time
