UPDATE: Cilantro

July 10, 2017

Abnormally high temperatures persist in California and Mexico. Hot weather can cause premature breakdown in Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) Cilantro packs.

  • RSS Washed & Trimmed Cilantro is sporadic due to erratic quality; packer label will be substituted as needed
  • Yellowing is decreasing yields at the field and processing levels, while decay is being seen in some finished product
  • Prices are climbing
    • Supplies are limited in Oxnard and the Salinas Valley
    • Mexican acreage will not be available for several weeks
