Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic from California is limited; packer label Mexican peeled garlic may be substituted to help bridge the gap from the 2019 to 2020 crop. New crop California harvesting will begin later this month.

  • Imported garlic shipments to the U.S. (from Argentina, China, Korea, Mexico, and Spain) are below normal levels; prices remain elevated
  • Demand for domestic garlic is extremely strong
  • The 2019 California storage crop is being depleted quickly; new crop harvesting will not begin until late June
    • Packer label Mexican supplies may need to be shipped for two to three weeks until new crop stocks are ready
    • Color, flavor, and size is similar to California stocks, with slightly less aroma and pungency
  • Expect new crop peeled California garlic to begin shipping July 1, 2020
