The market is tightening this week due to storms moving through the primary growing region in Veracruz, MX; prices are higher. Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Limes are available.
- Rain in the growing region is limiting production, lowering yields, and causing occasional delays in transportation
- All sizes are available; larger size (110-to 150-count sizes) are tight
- Sizing is expected to increase as new crop matures
- Light color, stylar, and oil spotting are still being reported by suppliers during the grading process; quality is average
- Markon recommends ordering for quick turns to maximize shelf life
- Expect two weeks of elevated pricing until weather improves and production returns to normal
Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
