UPDATE: Limited Red Bell Pepper Supplies

December 13, 2018

Red bell pepper prices are skyrocketing; supplies are extremely light as the industry approaches a harvesting gap between old crop California and new crop Mexican.

  • The California desert season has sporadic supplies remaining
  • Mexican stocks are behind schedule due to wet weather early in the growing season
    • Very light supplies are trickling into Arizona and Texas
  • Florida production is very limited
  • Prices will remain very high for two to three more weeks
