Large size Mexican avocado supplies (32- to 48- count fruit) remain tight; smaller sizes are recommended as substitutions.


  • Large sizes (32- to 48-count supplies) remain extremely limited
  • Smaller sizes (60- to 70-count fruit) are increasing; these supplies are filling the void of large size avocado shortages
  • Quality is good; checkerboarding (uneven ripening within a case) has been reported
  • Anticipate a substantial price savings when ordering small sizes (70- to 84-count stocks) as compared to large size fruit
  • Expect elevated prices for large sizes and steady markets for smaller fruit for the next four to six weeks


  • Yields continue to diminish week over week, as the season will wind down in late August
  • The crop is currently dominated by 48- and 60-count No. 1 grade fruit
  • Quality is good; checkerboarding (uneven ripening) has been reported
  • Expect stable pricing
