Prices are rising due to tight supplies and low yields caused by poor weather conditions in Mexico. Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Limes are available.

  • Mexican supplies are tight due to inclement weather from recent tropical storms
  • All sizes are available; larger size 110-to 150- count cartons are limited
  • High-quality supplies will remain tight until weather improves in late September; rain and thunderstorms are typical in Mexico this time of year
    • For the safety of their workers, growers must limit harvesting time
    • Quality issues will persist through September
  • Light color, stylar, and oil spotting are being reported by suppliers during the grading process
  • Expect prices to continue to increase steadily throughout August with potential for relief in the middle of September
