UPDATE: Tomatoes

February 18, 2020

All tomato varieties remain extremely limited, especially Romas. Prices continue to rise.

  • Mexican yields are lower than normal due to cool weather and rain damage; shipments into Arizona and South Texas are well-below normal
  • Florida supply is not meeting demand; domestic stocks are extremely limited
  • Rain damage is present in most lots; quality is fair
  • Round tomatoes (mature greens and vineripes) are being substituted for Romas to help fill orders
  • High prices will persist through mid- to late March when Mexican supplies increase
