Markets are elevated; industry volume is down 25-40% from the same time last year.


  • Central Mexico is the primary growing region at this time
    • Full production out of Central Mexico is expected slightly later than normal (late July)
    • Recent rains followed by a warming trend pushed spear production ahead of schedule
  • Harvesting has wrapped up in Southern Baja
  • Northern Baja (regarded as the premium asparagus growing region) will begin to open fields this weekend, easing supply pressure


  • Volume is increasing week over week but remains lower than normal due to an early onset of El Nino weather patterns
  • FOB pricing in Florida is comparable to that of Mexican product (crossing southern border)

Expect higher markets to continue through the summer months.
