Chile pepper markets are active, especially prices for specialty varieties such as Habaneros, Red Fresnos, and Anaheims, due to severe weather and harvesting transitions in Mexico and Georgia.

  • Demand is strong in Mexico; hailstorm damage prematurely ended the season in the state of Chihuahua
    • New crop Baja production is not expected reach normal levels until first week of July
    • Overall quality is average
  • California growers are harvesting limited quantities of good quality Jalapenos and Poblanos; more volume is expected next week
  • East Coast production is focused in Georgia; however, rainstorms have slowed harvests
  • Red Fresnos, Habaneros and Anaheim Chiles are extremely snug due to fewer acres planted
  • Expect prices to remain elevated over the next two weeks
