UPDATE: Cucumbers

February 18, 2020

Cucumber prices are climbing; volume is low. Cooler-than-normal temperatures have reduced stocks in Mexico’s primary growing region. Production is very limited in Florida and Honduras as well. Demand exceeds supply.

  • Cool temperatures and inclement weather have slowed growth in Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico; large sizes are especially tight
  • Warmer weather is forecast this week in Mexico which will help increase stocks over the coming weeks
  • Expect better availability and lower prices by the first week of March
