UPDATE: CILANTRO

July 11, 2022

The cilantro market is escalating.

  • Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) Cilantro is available
  • Above-average temperatures and humidity are forecast across California through next week
  • Volume fell following recent high temperatures in Oxnard, Salinas, and Santa Maria, California; burn, disease pressure, seeder, and yellowing are reducing harvestable volume at the field level by 35-40%
  • RSS Cilantro is currently achieving specified quality and shelf-life but there is potential for early breakdown due to heat-related stress  
  • Expect high markets through July, at minimum, until younger plantings reach harvest maturity
