UPDATE: Carrots

October 20, 2017

California jumbo carrots remain extremely limited; harvesting is transitioning to Bakersfield, California. Excessive heat in the region over the past three months has slowed growth and reduced product size.

  • Markon First Crop Jumbo Carrots will be limited over the next three to four weeks
  • Potential substitutions include
    • Clip-top carrots, 50-pound bags
    • Table carrots, 25-pound bags or cartons
    • The diameter of table and clip top carrots will be 1” versus the 1¼” plus diameter that jumbo carrots possess
  • Mexican supplies (into South Texas) are steady
  • Mexican jumbo carrots are typically larger than California varieties at 1½” to 2¼” diameter
  • Expect tight supplies over the next month as West Coast size increases
