UPDATE: CALIFORNIA CITRUS

December 28, 2021

California’s citrus supplies are extremely limited as rain continues to impact production in the San Joaquin Valley. Expect markets to continue climbing.

  • Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Lemons and Oranges are available
  • Production was limited at the start of the week; orchards are struggling to dry out after last weekend’s rain
  • More rain is forecast for tomorrow, December 29
  • Growers cannot harvest fruit when orchards are wet
    • If picked when wet, the rind will break down and discoloration will develop
    • Mud and standing water may limit crews’ ability to get equipment into orchards
  • Quality is good

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
