Lime prices continue to rise; supplies are extremely limited in Mexico (shipped into South Texas). 

  • Yields remain low; demand is strong
  • Lime availability will continue to be scarce over the next three weeks, especially large-size fruit
  • Size will be dominated by smaller fruit (250- to 275-count), with the possibility of 300-count size fruit hitting the U.S. markets
  • Expect elevated prices through late March/early April, when new crop harvesting starts and stocks begin to increase
  • Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Limes are sporadic; packer label is being substituted as needed
