The Brussels sprouts market is elevated.
- Size is dominated by small and medium sprouts; jumbo-size stocks are increasing, yet behind schedule due to the June heatwave and lack of frost hours
- The Salinas season will start in mid-July, increasing supplies and easing markets
- Overall quality is good, although bolting (fluffy texture) and bitter sprouts are a concern with recent variable weather; discoloration and early breakdown are minimal
- Expect high prices to persist until Salinas Valley crops have time to mature (approximately 10 to 14 days)
