Green bell pepper markets have eased due to increased Florida supply and lighter demand. Markon First Crop (MFC) and Markon Essentials (ESS) Green and Red Bell Peppers are available.

Green Bells

  • Mexican spring crops are underway; past inclement weather has stunted fruit growth
  • Sizing is dominated by medium and large peppers
  • Mexico supply will remain adequate through April, before transitioning to the California desert growing region in early May
  • South Florida has moderate volume of jumbo/extra-large fruit with excellent quality
  • Expect lower prices over the next week

Red Bells

  • West Mexico has consistent supply from a mix of old and new crop; quality is inconsistent
  • Expect improved quality from the spring crop out of central Mexico in mid-April
  • Canadian greenhouse spring production is underway; quality is strong
  • Prices are slightly lower this week
