UPDATE: LIMES

February 9, 2022

The market is rising; supplies are tightening. Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Limes are limited; packer label will be substituted as necessary.

  • Demand has increased; prices are climbing
  • Yields are down in Mexico; supplies (crossing into South Texas) are starting to decrease this week
  • The crop is dominated by large sizes (150- and 175-count fruit)
  • Quality is good: oil spotting is a concern but suppliers are culling damaged fruit as much as possible prior to loading on trucks
  • Expect prices to keep rising into March, which is common for this time of year

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
