UPDATE: MFC CANTALOUPE AND HONEYDEW

June 23, 2022

Markon First Crop Cantaloupe and Honeydew are limited as the spring desert season winds down; packer label will be substituted as needed until the San Joaquin Valley season starts the week of July 11.

  • Cantaloupe prices are inching up as the Arizona/California desert season winds down over the next two weeks
    • Size is peaking on 9ct
    • 15-count sizes are extremely limited and 12-count are also beginning to tighten up
  • California’s San Joaquin Valley cantaloupe season will kick off the week of July 11; expect a better range of sizing and markets to ease at that time
  • Flexibility on cantaloupe sizing may be needed through the transition
  • Honeydew markets are fairly steady with adequate availability on all sizes at this time
  • Markets are poised to rise over the next two weeks
