Cauliflower markets continue to escalate rapidly. Supplies are significantly tighter as quality challenges have reduced yields at the field level.

  • Packer label is being substituted to fill orders
  • Quality ranges from poor to fair due to erratic weather; discoloration, dark spotting, bracketed heads, leafy curds, and increasing insect pressure are affecting many lots
  • Prices are expected to remain elevated for the next two to three weeks or until production transitions to desert growing regions
  • Small-size packs (16-count supplies) will offer a small price advantage over 12- and 9-count packs as lots are being harvested earlier than scheduled to beat quality challenges
