UPDATE: GREEN LEAF AND ROMAINE

October 29, 2021

Green leaf and romaine markets continue to rise due to limited supplies.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Green Leaf and Romaine are available
  • Disease pressure continues to reduce yields, though not as severely as in iceberg crops
  • Overall quality is very good: light fringe burn and mildew pressure are present in some lots
  • Green leaf and romaine harvests will start in the Arizona/California desert growing region the week of November 8 and will ramp up in mid- to late November
  • Salinas Valley production will finish for the season in mid- to late November
  • Expect elevated markets to persist through late November at minimum
