Update: Bell Peppers

February 20, 2017
Bell pepper prices will continue to climb in Florida and Mexico over the next two weeks.
  • Markon First Crop (MFC) and Markon Essentials Green Bell Peppers are available in Florida and Mexico (into Nogales, Arizona, and South Texas)
  • MFC Red Bell Peppers are available in Mexico (into Nogales) 
  • Supplies will remain limited as Florida growers transition into new fields and adverse weather slows Mexican production
  • Large peppers will dominate Florida stocks; medium and small peppers are less available
  • Quality issues include bruising, scarring, and wind damage
