UPDATE: LIMES

September 7, 2022

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.
