California Valencia oranges continue to tighten, especially small sizes, as growers battle the effects of extreme heat. Remaining fruit is dominated by 72- and 88-count sizes.  

  • Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Valencia Oranges are available
  • Small-size fruit (113- to 138-count oranges) will be extremely limited for the rest of the season.
  • Substituting larger sizes (88-count stocks) may be necessary
  • Valencia quality concerns include re-greening and softness
  • California Navels will start shipping in late October.
