Cauliflower markets are poised to rise next week as the Salinas Valley season winds down.

  • Markon Essentials (ESS) Cauliflower is available; packer label may be substituted as needed
  • End of season quality challenges will reduce harvestable supplies
    • Appearance defects such as discoloration, spotting, and mold are prevalent
    • Cooler nights are slowing maturity and reducing yields
  • Ordering for short turns is advised for the next two to three weeks as shelf-life is decreased and aesthetic defects are prevalent
  • Suppliers will begin harvesting new crop supplies in the Arizona/California desert region starting the weeks of November 13 and 20

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
