Abnormally high temperatures and a dry weather pattern have created a shortage of cabbage supplies along the Eastern Seaboard.

New Jersey

  • Plant maturity has been slowed due to temperatures exceeding 90 degrees over the past two weeks, creating smaller sized cabbage heads

North Carolina

  • Dry and hot weather with temperatures in the mid- to high 90s is creating a gap between growing season from Eastern North Carolina into Western North Carolina
  • Rain is forecasted next week, helping to increase maturity, size, and yields

New York

  • The season has started in a limited manner; supply relief can be expected as volume increases
  • Typical summer weather patterns can be expected through the rest of the month

Quality and Pricing

  • Quality is normal for this time of year; smaller size profile has reduced yields
  • Prices are elevated but are expected to remain steady into next week until supplies start increasing, pushing pricing downward
