UPDATE: Green Onions

December 29, 2015


Green onion supplies are limited. Prices are rising. Freezing temperatures have caused harvesting delays, limited production, lowered volume, and impacted quality. 

  • Growers are waiting for temperatures to rise before harvesting, causing loading delays and fewer available stocks
  • The market for 48-count iced green onions is reaching the low $20.00 range FOB
  • Small sizes are most abundant; medium and large sizes are extremely tight
  • Quality problems such as frost damage and yellowing will be present for the next several weeks
  • Expect tight supplies and elevated markets through next week
  • Ready-Set-Serve Green Onion trigger levels are expected to be reached by next week
