Freezing evening temperatures have reduced overall yields and increased prices in Florida. Mexican markets are higher as demand has shifted from the East Coast. Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) Trimmed Green Beans are limited; packer label may be substituted as needed.

  • Florida growers experienced near freezing weather last weekend and mitigated some loss by implementing frost protection measures, such as covering crops with cloth and flooding furrows to add humidity; expect very snug supplies over the next month
  • Mexican supplies remain sufficient; however, increased demand is pushing up prices this week
    • Overall quality is good
    • Minor scarring is being reported in some lots
  • Expect much higher prices heading into next week
