Volume has risen dramatically, driving recently high prices down to low levels. Markon First Crop (MFC) Asparagus is available.

  • Northern Baja/Mexicali, Sonora, and the Caborca areas of Northern Mexico are the primary growing regions at this time
    • Peruvian growers are struggling to compete with low Mexican markets, significantly decreasing the number of imports shipped to the East Coast at this time
    • Small-diameter stalks dominate yields, but jumbo and extra-large sizes are readily available
    • Quality is very good; stalks are straight and size is consistent
  • Expect supplies and markets to stay relatively low through this month as temperate weather is aiding growth.
