Mexican volume is increasing slowly; markets are softening. The California and Peruvian seasons are ending. Once production ends in these regions, pricing is expected to stabilize and possibly increase.


  • Large sizes (32- to 48-count supplies) are increasing, but remain limited
  • Smaller sizes (60- to 70-count fruit) are becoming more plentiful; these supplies are being substituted for larger sizes as needed
  • There continues to be a substantial price savings when ordering small sizes (70- to 84-count stocks) as compared to large-size fruit
  • Expect declining markets over the next two to three weeks


  • Yields continue to diminish week over week, as these seasons are expected to come to an end in the next ten to twelve days
  • Remaining quality is good; checkerboarding (uneven ripening) has been reported
  • Expect stable pricing through the end of these seasons
