UPDATE: LIMES

February 15, 2022

Lime prices continue to climb; supplies are very limited. Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Limes are available; packer label is being substituted as needed.

  • Mexican lime supplies (crossing into Arizona, California, and South Texas) are below normal; yields are approaching a seasonal low in the primary growing region of Veracruz
  • Limited supplies of offshore limes are beginning to make their way into the Canadian and U.S. markets
    • Stocks from countries such as Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, and Peru will become more prevalent in the coming weeks with Mexican prices soaring
  • Quality is fairly good with an increase in choice grade fruit
    • Shippers are culling higher percentages of fruit with scarring, skin breakdown, and oil spotting
    • Supplies are dominated by 150- and 175- count sizes
  • The market is poised to keep rising over the next two weeks and remain elevated through March
