  • Some suppliers have begun harvesting in the Arizona/California desert region; supplies will increase over the next two weeks
  • California Coastal stocks remain limited
  • “Force Majeure” (Act of God) is still in place for current 2018 contracts, but should be lifted by mid-October
  • Chilean lemon volume is declining as the season winds down
  • Mexican-grown supplies (into California and South Texas) are ample and will be available through September
