Red bell peppers will begin transitioning from the Southern California growing region to Mexico over the next week. Light demand and steady markets are expected for the next 7-10 days. Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Green and Red Bell Peppers are available.

Red Bell Peppers

  • The California desert season will come to an end over the next few weeks
  • The main transition to Mexico (crossing through Nogales) will occur beginning of January; quality is excellent
  • Expect steady prices over the next week

Green Bell Peppers

  • Mexican volume is light this week due to cooler weather and reduced harvest labor during the holiday season
  • Most Florida growers escaped frost damage as they started new fields in southern regions of the state
  • Sizing is dominated by jumbo and extra-large bell peppers
  • Expect prices to ease over the next two weeks
