- Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Green Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine are readily available in the Arizona and California desert
- Quality is very good; shape, size, and texture are meeting MFC brand specifications
- Yesterday’s low temperatures resulted in moderate lettuce ice in most of desert growing areas
- Harvests were delayed one to four hours to allow heads to thaw

- Epidermal blistering and peeling are not expected to develop as of now
- Markets will remain relatively flat at low levels through December
