California cantaloupe and honeydew production is winding down in the San Joaquin Valley. Prices are rising.

  • Markon First Crop  Cantaloupe and Honeydew are on the market
  • Expect sporadic size availability for the next 14 days as heavy smoke is reducing sunlight and delaying plant maturity/uniformity
  • Late August’s hot weather has impacted early growth and slowed the maturity of fields
  • Growers in the Arizona desert region will begin harvesting in mid-October
