UPDATE: GREEN LEAF, ICEBERG, AND ROMAINE

October 26, 2021

Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine markets are extremely active due to limited supplies.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Green Leaf and Romaine are available
  • MFC Premium Iceberg is sporadic; Markon Best Available is being substituted as needed due to low weights
  • Disease pressure continues to reduce yields; cool weather is slowing growth and hindering field weights
  • Overall quality is good: inconsistent texture, mildew pressure, and wind damage are being reported
  • Iceberg production is underway in Huron, California
  • Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine harvests will start in the Arizona/California desert growing region in mid-November
  • Expect sustained active/elevated markets through the harvesting transition to the Arizona/California desert region
