Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) Washed & Trimmed Cilantro is available.

  • The previous month has brought several low-pressure systems to both the Oxnard, California and the Yuma, Arizona growing regions
  • Persistently low temperatures and precipitation have compromised current plantings and drastically reduced the shelf-life of current shipments
  • Stocks are exhibiting minimal issues at time of harvest, but cumulative stress over the growth cycle is greatly reducing shelf-life
    • Growers have increased sorting on value-added production lines to combat early breakdown and yellowing
    • Ordering for quicker turns is highly recommended to reduce the age of product for the next two to three weeks
  • Markets are expected to remain relatively steady but quality challenges will continue to develop during transport as additional precipitation is in the forecast
