UPDATE: Brussels Sprout Prices Continue To Climb

May 09, 2019

Brussels sprouts remain extremely limited; prices continue to climb.

  • There are currently two primary Brussels sprout growing regions in North America
    • Mexico – Baja, California
    • California – Central Coast (Oxnard and Santa Maria)
  • Yields are lower in both California and Mexico; rain and cold weather over the past several months that have stunted growth
  • The Salinas/Castroville season will begin in late May, but stocks will remain tight; heavy winter rains delayed planting and tightened current supplies
  • Volume will remain extremely low through June; expect high prices
