Artichokes remain extremely limited.

  • A cold start to the winter season continues to slow maturation and cause a burned appearance on leaf tips
  • Suppliers are packing 12-count sizes primarily
  • An upcoming warming trend will promote growth and availability, but low volume will persist through mid-January
    • Oxnard, California is the primary growing region right now
    • Coachella Valley growers will begin limited production by the middle of next week
    • Mexican supplies will ramp up by the end of the month
  • Expect abundant stocks by late January as current harvesting strategies pay off and weather warms in Mexico and the Arizona/California desert regions
