UPDATE: GREEN LEAF, ICEBERG, AND ROMAINE

December 3, 2021

The iceberg market is weak; supplies are abundant. Green leaf and romaine prices continue to fall.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Iceberg is available; field weights have increased compared to recent weeks
  • MFC Premium Green Leaf and Romaine are readily available
  • Ideal weather conditions in the Arizona and California desert region are promoting growth and increasing field weights, especially in iceberg lots
  • Quality is very good: growth cracking, mildew pressure, fringe burn, and seeder are occasional issues
  • Markets will continue declining into next week when demand starts ramping up for the holidays
