UPDATE: California Citrus

March 13, 2018

The San Joaquin Valley (California’s primary citrus growing region) will receive a series of rain events, which started yesterday, March 12, and continue through through Saturday, March 17. As a result of the rain, some growers have had to cancel harvesting due to muddy conditions and wet fruit.

  • Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Lemons and Oranges are sporadic due to rain; packer label will be substituted as needed
  • Orange supplies are extremely limited, especially 88-count and smaller sizes
  • Prices will remain elevated
  • Flexibility in size and grade may be needed for order coverage
  • Order lead-time is encouraged to help fully fill orders

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
