Supplies are tight in Veracruz, Mexico due to recent inclement weather. Markets remain elevated, especially those for larger sizes. Markon First Crop (MFC) and Markon Essentials (ESS) Limes are available.

  • Stocks are snug as the Veracruz region experienced rainstorms this week
    • Large sizes (110- to 150-count fruit) are extremely limited; however, new crop smaller sizes (230- to 250-count limes) are widely available
    • Packers are grading heavily for blanching, scarring, and oil spots
  • The Jalisco region, which adds to overall lime volume in December, will see lower yields due to Hurricane Lidia
  • Expect the price spread between large and small sizes to persist into next week

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
