July 7, 2023

Markets are elevated; industry volume is down as domestic crops have been fully depleted and demand exceeds supply out of Mexico and Peru. Expect pricing to remain elevated through July until volume rises.


  • Central Mexico and Southern Baja are the primary growing regions
    • Full production out of Central Mexico is expected slightly later than normal (late July)
    • Recent heavy rains followed by a warming trend will help spur spear production in Central Mexican fields
    • Harvesting has begun to wind down in Southern Baja, with about half of this season’s fields closing
    • Northern Baja (regarded as a premium asparagus growing region) will begin to open fields in 14-21 days, easing supply pressure somewhat


  • Peru’s volume is increasing week over week but remains lower than normal due to cyclonic weather patterns
