Lime prices are escalating and projected to reach an all-time high by the month’s end and persist through February.

  • Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Limes are limited; packer label will be substituted as necessary
  • Hurricane Max made landfall on September 18, greatly reducing Key lime yields; demand has increased for Persian limes in response
  • Expect limited Persian lime stocks for the next 30 to 60 days
    • The current crop is dominated by small fruit
    • Large sizes will become increasingly scarce
  • Overall quality is good
  • Prices are expected to rise $15-$20 over the next 7 to 10 days
