Increased Guatemalan cantaloupe and honeydew supplies are pushing down markets this week.


  • Imported honeydews are now shipping out of Guatemala into Florida and California
  • West Coast volume is slightly higher this week; prices have eased
  • The size profile is shifting to larger melons (5- and 6-count fruit)
  • Mexican supplies remain snug due to cool weather and rain in the Sonoran growing region; quality is good out of both growing regions
  • Expect lower markets as stocks increase over the next 10 days


  • Imported cantaloupes continue to ship out of Guatemala
  • Overall quality is good
  • Size is shifting to larger fruit (9- to 12-count melons)
  • Prices are slightly lower this week as West Coast shipments increase
