Larger sizes (extra-large and jumbo) remain extremely scarce; prices will continue rising this week. Packer label is being substituted to meet demand when necessary.


  • Limited quantities are being harvested in Northern Baja; the southern end of the peninsula has wrapped up
  • Smaller-diameter (standard and large size) stalks dominate yields
  • Continued cooler weather and elevated markets have hindered maturation
  • Extra-large and jumbo sizes are in strong demand; substituting large and/or standard packs is recommended to ensure orders are filled over the next two to three weeks
  • Expect supplies to increase and prices to ease slightly by the second to third week of January


  • Minimal volume is being imported into Miami, Florida
  • FOB costs remain comparable from both regions; some freight savings are available for Eastern DCs
  • Expect high prices and extremely tight supplies into early February
