Bell pepper supplies remain adequate as growers work through remaining winter crops. Markon First Crop (MFC) and Markon Essentials (ESS) Green and Red Bell Peppers are available.

Green Bells

  • Mexican stocks are meeting demand
    • Quality is good with occasional bruising
    • Spring production is expected to start in mid-March
  • Florida growers have moderate winter volume; favorable weather has improved quality
  • Expect markets to increase slightly over the next week

Red Bells

  • Mexican supplies are tight; however, should increase with more sunny weather in Culiacan
  • Overall quality is good; off shape and wind scarring are occasional issues
  • Expect prices to remain steady next week
