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
