  • Expect higher prices and limited supplies until the transition south during the week of October 11; new crop stocks are expected to ramp up by mid- to late October
  • Size substitutions may be required to fill orders
  • 6- and 8-count honeydew are extremely scarce
  • 9-count cantaloupes are limited
  • Overall quality is good
