Severe weather storms in Mexico and South Texas will impact lime supplies this week. Markets are poised to increase. Markon First Crop (MFC) and Markon Essentials (ESS) Limes are available.

  • Mexico experienced heavy rains over the weekend; Hurricane Hilary has hampered production
  • The South Texas border near McAllen is experiencing 35mph winds and precipitation today as Tropical Storm Harold passes through the region; logistical routes in the area may see delays over the next 24 hours
  • Overall quality is good; however, extra grading is required due to scarring, blanching, and oil spots
  • Larger-size fruit (110- to 150-count limes) are more abundant
  • Expect active prices over the next two weeks

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
