UPDATE: Limited Tomato Supplies

March 15, 2019

Roma and round tomatoes remain tight, especially Florida supplies. Domestic mature green prices are rising.

  • Mexican yields are lower than normal due to cool weather and transitioning crops; vine ripe tomato volume (into Arizona and South Texas) are below normal
  • Florida stocks are very limited, especially 6x6 and larger sizes; cool weather and rain is forecast this weekend through next Wednesday
  • High prices will persist through late March/early April, when new crop supplies ramp up
