UPDATE: Tomato Prices

January 16, 2020
Round tomato prices are inching down; as expected, the market has peaked. Prices will continue to ease through the end of the month.
  • New crop Mexican tomatoes (into Nogales, Arizona and McAllen, Texas) are increasing
    • Roma and grape tomato supplies are sufficient; prices are lower
    • Round tomato stocks are becoming more plentiful; however, prices remain high for large sizes
    • Quality is fair: Mexican fruit is light in color as growers are harvesting vines early to hit high markets
  • Florida volume is slowly rising; West Coast demand is keeping availability tight (especially large sizes)
  • Expect improved availability and lower prices
