Red bell pepper volume is slowing increasing due to warmer weather in Sinaloa, Mexico. Green bells supplies are ample out of Mexico. Markon First Crop (MFC) and Markon Essentials (ESS) Green and Red Bell Peppers are available.

Red Bells

  • Mexico’s warmer weather over the last week has helped the ripening process
    • Expect supplies to exponentially increase over the next two weeks
    • Quality is good
  • Gold bells remain snug as less acreage was planted
  • Expect lower prices over the next two weeks, weather permitting

Green Bells

  • Mexico has good availability and quality, keeping the overall market lower; all sizes are available
  • Florida stocks remain tight due to past inclement weather
    • Quality is mixed
    • Some growers are reporting great quality while others are seeing rain-related concerns such as odd shape and scarring
  • Expect slightly lower markets over the next week
