UPDATE: Limited Sugar Snap Pea Supplies

December 20, 2019

Sugar snap pea supplies will be limited over the next two weeks. Rain and freezing temperatures are causing quality issues and reducing yields in the Baja, Mexico growing region.

  • Expect tight stocks until harvesting in the Caborca, Sonora growing region of Mexico starts in early January
  • Suppliers are sorting raw product prior to shipping, but heavy cull rates are resulting in fewer sugar snap peas on the market
  • Quality issues such as spotting and discoloration may be present in finished packs
  • Expect elevated markets and limited supplies into early January
