Lime prices will inch down slightly over the next week as shipments crossing from Mexico (into South Texas) increase to normal levels. The sudden spike in pricing, due to a combination of lower-than-normal volume and protests over rising fuel prices in Mexico, has begun to weaken. Although prices will ease, markets will remain at above-normal levels for one to two more weeks while suppliers increase inventory.
- Markon First Crop Limes are available from Mexico (loading in McAllen, Texas)
- Prices will ease over the next week as shipments into South Texas increase
- The market will remain at above-average levels for another two weeks while inventory ramps up
- Current quality is good and will improve as more stocks become available; occasional skin breakdown and scarring are minor issues
