Inclement weather is slowing harvests in the main growing region of Veracruz, Mexico this week. Prices are elevated. Markon First Crop (MFC) and Markon Essentials (ESS) Limes are available.

  • Growers in Veracruz, Mexico packed early this week due to increased rainstorms and minor flooding in the region
  • Increasing scarring and blanching and other general quality issues are pushing prices upward
  • Large-sized fruit (110- to 150-count limes) have increased
  • Expect higher markets in August, as we enter rainy/hurricane season
