UPDATE: BROCCOLI and CAULIFLOWER
May 26, 2020
Expect tight California broccoli stocks over the next several weeks.
A supply gap is expected to develop
Temperatures swing from abnormally hot (pushing plant maturity faster than scheduled), to significantly cooler weather later this week and next (slowing growth)
Due to the depressed market over the past 60 days, many growers have allowed some broccoli fields to go to seed and/or plowed them under
Broccoli stocks can be supplemented in South Texas with product from Central Mexico
Mexican broccoli volume is adequate
Quality is good: Central Mexico has seen little rain recently
