Lime prices are extremely active due to recent stormy weather. Markon First Crop (MFC) and Markon Essentials (ESS) Limes are available.

  • Supplies are tight due rain over the last two weeks in Veracruz, Mexico which slowed harvesting and downgraded quality
  • Growers are slowing packing lines to increase grading; suppliers are rerunning fruit in South Texas facilities
  • Very large (110-count) and very small (250-count) limes are limited
  • Overall quality is average
    • Skin breakdown, oil spotting, stylar, and light color fruit are being observed
    • Shelf-life is diminished
  • Markon recommends increased stock rotation at this time
  • Expect higher prices over the next two weeks

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
