UPDATE: Tomatoes

March 28, 2017

Tomato prices will increase over the next two weeks while growers transition from winter to spring production in Florida and Mexico.

  • Florida harvests will transition from Immokalee to Ruskin/Palmetto over the next two weeks
    • Extra-large and large sizes will be limited as the current season winds down
    • Ideal weather is forecast in the Florida growing regions; quality is very good
  • The seasons for Mexican Roma, round, and grape tomatoes will wind down in Culiacan over the next three to four weeks
    • Production will transition to Sonora and Baja, followed by Indio, California in mid-May
    • Roma quality is strong; vine ripe and grape tomatoes will have softer texture and reduced shelf-life
