UPDATE: Tomatoes

December 01, 2017

Tomato supplies remain very limited in both Florida and Mexico. Expect elevated prices through December.

  • Florida round tomato production will remain at below-average levels through late December due to severe weather impacts this fall; extra-large sizes will be especially limited as growers move into their second and third picks
  • Mexican-grown vine ripe supplies are scarce (into Arizona and Texas); winter production will ramp up by early January
  • Mexican Roma volume is sufficient, but strong demand will push prices higher over the next two weeks
  • Grape and cherry tomato supplies have increased; expect prices to decline over the next ten days
