UPDATE: ORANGES

October 11, 2021

The California Valencia season is coming to an end; supplies of 113-count and smaller oranges are extremely tight. New crop Navel oranges will enter the market this week in a very limited manner. Orange prices will remain elevated through October.

Valencia

  • Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials California Valencia Oranges are available
  • Quality has deteriorated; heat from last summer, lack of water, and necessary gassing are taking a toll on the fruit
  • Small-size fruit (113- to 138-count oranges) will be extremely limited for the rest of the Valencia season
  • Expect prices to increase

Navel

  • The California Navel harvest has begun
  • Early season supplies are tight
  • Gas times are approximately 96 hours
