UPDATE: Melons

October 16, 2019

Markon First Crop (MFC) Cantaloupes and Honeydews are available. The California Westside growing region in the San Joaquin Valley is ending. New crop melons out of the Arizona/California desert growing region are commanding higher prices.

  • MFC Cantaloupes and Honeydews are now available from the desert region
    • The crop is expected to favor large sizes such as 9-count cantaloupe and 5-count honeydews
    • Desert supplies will ship through Thanksgiving, at which point the crop will transition 100% to Mexico and offshore regions for the winter
  • Mexican and offshore stocks are a few weeks away from entering the market
  • Expect elevated prices for several weeks
