Supplies are limited due to inconsistent weather patterns in the Salinas Valley.

  • High temperatures earlier in the season damaged younger plantings
  • Recent cooler weather has hindered growth
  • Overall quality is good; however, worm damage is reducing harvestable yields at the field level
  • Size profile is small as growers are roughly 7 to 10 days ahead of harvest schedule; additionally, growers are harvesting fields earlier to minimize insect pressure
  • Expect elevated markets and tight supplies for the duration of the Salinas season; the Arizona/California Desert season will begin in mid- to late November
