UPDATE: Melons

November 03, 2017

Cantaloupe and honeydew supplies remain limited as domestic production winds down in the Arizona/California desert region. 

  • Markon First Crop Cantaloupe and Honeydew Melons will be sporadic through November 18
  • Large sizes continue to dominate fall crops (9-count cantaloupes and 5-count honeydews)
  • Mexican fruit is being shipped into Nogales, Arizona; quality is comparable to domestic stocks
  • Guatemalan fruit will be available in South Florida by November 20, followed by California by early December
