UPDATE: LIMES

March 22, 2022

Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Limes remain limited; packer label is being substituted as needed.

  • The market for large sizes continues to rise
    • Medium to large sizes (110- through 200-count limes) are extremely limited
    • 230-count limes may be substituted as needed
  • Growers are taking advantage of high prices by picking new crop fruit before it has time to grow in size
    • Very small sizes (250- and 275-count fruit) are becoming more prevalent
    • Prices are slightly lower for these sizes
  • Overall quality is good: stylar is occasionally present in some lots
  • Lime juice remains sufficient; juice processors are sourcing from all regions as needed to ensure steady supply
  • Expect high prices and limited Mexican supplies into early to mid-April
