Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Limes are available. Mexican supplies are limited. The market is poised to climb over the next several weeks.

  • Elevated temperatures and wet weather in the primary growing regions of Mexico are causing quality issues and shortening shelf-life
  • Supply will meet demand over the next few weeks, but quality fruit will command higher prices
    • Quality problems are reducing yields
    • Growers are re-packing and sorting limes prior to shipping Markon orders
  • Prices will rise over the next two to three weeks
