UPDATE: CALIFORNIA CITRUS

December 17, 2021

California’s San Joaquin Valley will receive a series of rain events starting Tuesday, December 21 and continuing through Sunday December 26. Harvesting delays are expected as a result.

  • Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Lemons and Oranges are available
  • Growers cannot harvest fruit when it is wet
    • Conditions are too difficult for crews and equipment to get in and out of the orchards when there is mud and standing water on the ground
    • Markon has requested that harvesting crews pack next week’s orders today and through the weekend to get ahead of this rain event
  • Quality is excellent and supplies are adequate
  • Navel orange gas times have fallen to 24-48 hours
