The Brussels sprouts market continues to ease.

  • Temperatures have been favorable in Mexicali, Mexico, promoting stalk and sprout growth
    • A slight cold trend with highs in the low to mid-60s and evening temperatures in the mid- to upper 30s is forecast through the rest of the week
    • Next week’s weather is forecast in the mid- to upper 70s with evening temperatures in the mid- to upper 40s
  • Size is dominated by small and medium sprouts; however, jumbo-size stocks are increasing
