UPDATE: Oranges

August 24, 2018

  • Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Valencia Oranges are sporadic; packer label supplies are being substituted as needed
  • Offshore oranges from Australia, Chile, Morocco, South Africa, and Uruguay will be substituted to meet summer and fall demand
    • Offshore oranges are increasing on both coasts
    • Imports are dominated by 88-count and larger sizes, as well as fancy grade; fruit will have PLU stickers
  • Early Texas Navels will be available in September
  • Mexican oranges will be on the market in November
  • Domestic Navels are forecast to be available in October
