UPDATE: Bell Peppers

March 23, 2017

Bell pepper prices will increase over the next 10-14 days due to tighter supplies in Florida and Mexico.

  • Growers will transition into the final stages of winter production in Sinaloa, Mexico and Southern Florida
  • Inconsistent weather in both regions has slowed production as new crops ramp up
  • Extra-large and large peppers will be especially limited over the next week as crews break into new fields
  • Expect prices to climb over the next 10 days, then return to normal levels
