Lime prices will remain elevated through early May as production slows in Veracruz, Mexico.

  • Markon First Crop Limes are available from Mexico (into McAllen, Texas)
  • Low production levels will limit shipments into South Texas over the next two months
  • Expect high markets from late March through early May as both the labor force and crop yields fall short of industry demand
  • New crop quality is excellent, but as current stocks diminish, fruit will require more sorting for problems such as discoloration and scarring
  • Large-size limes (110- to 150 count fruit) are extremely limited
