UPDATE: Extremely Limited Avocado Supplies

November 07, 2018

Avocado supplies will be extremely limited over the next several weeks. Mexico, the primary growing region, has limited exports into the United States due to a grower strike.

  • Most Mexican growers have not packed since late October; harvesting is not expected to resume until Monday, November 12
  • Avocado packing sheds are anticipating extremely limited availability for the next few weeks
  • Expect very few ripe avocados; packing sheds will be using hard green avocados to fill the shortage
