Markets continue to fall as Peruvian imports enter the market and Baja, Mexico moves into peak season. Expect steady prices for the next seven to ten days.


  • Baja, Mexico is North America’s primary growing region
  • Strong winds and flooding caused by Hurricane Hilary did minimal damage to crops; suppliers have worked to cull scarred and bent stalks
  • Size profile has evened; large and standard sizes dominate availability
  • Jumbo and extra-large supplies are increasingly available


  • Volume remains below average due to an early onset of El Nino weather pattern but supplies through September have been plentiful
  • Growing regions in Southern Peru are seeing good quality and high yields
  • FOB pricing out of Miami is comparable to Mexican product crossing at the southern border
