UPDATE: BRUSSELS SPROUTS

June 14, 2022

The Brussels sprouts market has eased.

  • Temperatures have been favorable in Mexicali, Mexico, promoting stalk and sprout growth
  • Production is ramping up in the Oxnard, California growing region
    • Size is dominated by small and medium sprouts
    • Jumbo-size stocks are increasing
  • The Salinas season will start in mid-July, further increasing supplies
  • Overall quality is good, although bolting (fluffy texture) and bitter sprouts will be a concern with persistent heat
  • Discoloration and early breakdown are minimal
  • Expect markets to continue declining over the next 10 to 14 days
