UPDATE: Bell Peppers

January 07, 2020
Green Bell Peppers
  • Prices continue to rise; supplies are extremely limited
  • Rainy, cold weather is reducing Mexican volume in Hermosillo, Sonora
  • Limited Florida volume is shifting demand out west, further tightening stocks
  • Expect elevated markets the next one to two weeks
Red Bell Peppers
  • The market is steady to slightly higher than last week; overall supplies are ample
  • Mexico is the primary growing region (into Nogales, Arizona)
  • The slight rise in prices should be short lived, as production is ramping up in the Culiacan, Sinaloa growing region
