UPDATE: Tomatoes

December 05, 2017

Tomato prices continue to climb; supplies in Florida and Mexico remain extremely limited. The market is expected to ease by early January.

  • Central and South Florida mature green volume will remain below seasonal norms for the next four weeks
    • Extra-large sizes will be especially limited as Central Florida growers move into their second and third picks
    • Expect a demand-exceeds-supply market through December
  • Mexican-grown vine ripe supplies are scarce; winter production will not ramp up until early January
  • Limited vine ripe stocks will cause a spike in demand for Mexican Romas; expect rising prices for three weeks
