UPDATE: Cucumbers

August 13, 2019

Prices for Baja cucumber are escalating; Mexican supplies are extremely tight. East Coast stocks are adequate, but expected to tighten due to shifting demand.

  • Baja, Mexico is the primary growing region for West Coast cucumbers this time of year; high temperatures have caused bloom drop, resulting in low yields for most growers
  • East Coast cucumbers are available out of Michigan and New York
    • Weather has been favorable
    • Quality is average
  • Expect limited availability and high prices for the next four to six weeks (through September)
