UPDATE: Rising Bell Pepper Prices
June 13, 2019
Bell pepper prices will rise next week; supplies are tightening as the crop transitions north. Expect elevated markets for the rest of June.
Green bell harvesting is winding down in the California desert region and slowly starting in California’s San Joaquin Valley
The Georgia season is ending sooner than normal due to high temperatures; growers are moving to North Carolina
Red and yellow bell pepper supplies will tighten as the California desert and Georgia seasons wind down over the next two to three weeks
Demand will shift West due to limited East Coast stocks, but California volume will not meet the extra demand
Expect active markets and limited supplies through June as bell pepper growing regions transition on both coasts
