Extremely high temperatures, reaching into the 100s, will reduce onion size and overall volume in California’s San Joaquin Valley and Southern New Mexico. Prices will climb.
Markon First Crop (MFC) Yellow Super Colossal and Colossal Onions will be most damaged by the heat; high temperatures slow growth and lead to more mechanical defects during the production process
MFC Red, White, and Yellow Jumbo and Medium Onions will remain readily available
All trucks will follow onion sheds’ transit temperature recommendation to maintain quality
Airflow is key to preserving shelf-life and deterring mold, especially upon arrival
