UPDATE: LIMES

April 4, 2022

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

  • The market for large sizes continues to tighten; prices are higher
    • Medium to large sizes (110- through 200-count limes) are extremely limited
    • 230-count limes may be substituted as needed
  • Very small sizes (250- and 275-count fruit) are ample; prices are slightly lower for this fruit
  • 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
  • Reduced harvesting during Mexico’s Holy week (week of April 11) is expected to keep lime supplies extremely tight the week following Easter (week of April 18)
  • Expect high prices and limited Mexican stocks through April 22
