The cucumber market is active. Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Cucumbers are available.

  • All grades/sizes are available
  • Quality is very good: texture is firm and color is deep green
  • The offshore Honduran import program is being affected by port congestion and labor shortages
  • Some lots are on boats longer than normal, creating freshness concerns
  • Florida production is expected to start in mid-March
  • Prices are climbing
