Cilantro markets remain relatively low as multiple growing regions are in production, but prices are poised to rise amid reduced quality and lower yields.

  • Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) Washed & Trimmed Cilantro is available; packer label may be substituted due to quality defects over the next 10 to 14 days
  • Fast moving rain storms in Oxnard, California and high winds in Yuma, Arizona have stressed mature plantings leading to quality problems such as
    • Longer stem length in finished packs
    • Yellowing leaves
    • Early breakdown/reduced shelf-life
  • Some low lying areas in the Santa Maria and Salinas Valleys have been affected by flooding, impacting planting schedules and creating the potential for supply gaps in April and May
  • Expect markets to firm up through the first half of April; warmer spring weather will increase growth and improve quality, barring any major storm systems
