UPDATE: ORANGES

September 20, 2021

The California Valencia season is nearing its end, expect strong markets for the next 6-8 weeks.

• Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials California Valencia Oranges are available
• Valencia supplies will be extremely limited until the Navel Season begins approximately the last week of October into early November
• Small-size fruit (113- to 138-count oranges) will be extremely tight for the remainder of the Valencia season
• Quality concerns include re-greening and decay due to above-normal temperatures through the summer months
• Shelf life is shorter than normal; Markon recommends ordering for quick turns
