UPDATE: LIME QUALITY

November 4, 2021

Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Limes are available. Hurricane Grace made landfall on the State of Veracruz, Mexico Saturday, August 21, as a Category 3 storm.

  • Growers are seeing higher levels of quality issues in their younger fruit, as it matures
  • Styler and skin breakdown are being reported; high attention is going into grading
  • 150-count and larger fruit is light in color and showing scaring issues
  • High-quality supplies are very limited; prices are increasing
  • Quality issues will persist through November; expect improvement when new crop supplies arrive in 3 weeks
    • Current sizing is dominated by 150- and 175-count sizes
