UPDATE: CUCUMBERS

June 28, 2022

Cucumber markets are climbing. East Coast supplies are limited due to recent moisture and high temperatures. Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Cucumbers are available.

  • The East Coast supply is low as both Georgia and North Carolina production has ended early due to heat and rain
  • Quality is subpar on any remaining inventory
  • New Jersey volume is slowly increasing; quality is very good
  • Harvesting is expected to start in Michigan the week of July 10
  • The Baja Peninsula is shipping sufficient stocks despite strong demand
  • Quality is very good
  • Supplemental supplies are coming from Central Mexico fruit (crossing in South Texas)
  • Expect higher prices over the next two weeks

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
