The Northwest storage onion season continues to wind down. Fresh-run, Texas-grown stocks are beginning to ramp up. Sufficient supplies of Mexican fresh-run onions are crossing into South Texas.

Storage Crop

  • Idaho/Oregon-grown MFC Onions are expected to be available through April 15; many suppliers have already depleted storage supplies
  • Washington-grown MFC Onions will ship through the end of April  
  • Although stocks are diminishing, pricing has eased due to increased production in Texas
  • Quality continues to be strong

New Crop

  • Texas-grown MFC Red and Yellow Onion supplies are readily available; markets have eased as volume has risen
  • Mexican onions are readily available; markets are flat as steady supplies continue to cross into South Texas
  • The Southern California desert season is still not expected to get started until the week of April 24, with limited supplies to start
  • New Mexican onions will hit the market in early June
  • Central and Northern California onions are also slated to become available by early June
