Green Bells

  • Despite low nighttime temperatures that have delayed growth in some Mexican fields, overall supplies remain ample
  • South Florida’s winter volume is low due to recent cold weather
  • Weaker demand is keeping prices level this week; expect stable markets and adequate stocks next week

Red Bells

  • Yields are high in the Sinaloa region of Mexico despite cooler evenings
    • Overall quality is very good
    • Overripe peppers are being observed in some lots
  • The East Coast doesn’t produce a significant amount of colored bell peppers
