UPDATE: Markon First Crop (MFC) Melons

May 28, 2019

Domestic MFC Cantaloupe and Honeydew Melons are now in season. New crop domestic supplies are exhibiting excellent quality with firm texture, good shipping ability, and long shelf-life.

  • The popular Origami cantaloupe variety is now shipping out of Brawley, California
    • Higher Brix, deep orange color, small seed cavity, and a thin rind are key attributes of this variety
    • Supplies are only available during the domestic season
  • Domestic growers will transition harvesting north to California’s San Joaquin Valley in early July
  • New crop melons are commanding slightly higher prices than offshore melons; however, prices are settling
