Central American cantaloupe and honeydew markets remain elevated. Supplies are tight due to limited space available on cargo ships and increased freight costs.

  • Imported supplies are shipping out of Guatemala, Honduras, and Costa Rica
  • Mexican honeydews are being used as necessary to fill orders
  • West Coast supplies remain in a demand-exceeds-supply situation
  • East Coast prices are slightly lower as availability is slightly higher
  • Overall quality is fair; bruising and over ripened fruit are occasional issues caused by increased travel times
  • Expect elevated markets and tight supplies into March
