Supplies of 113- and 138-count oranges are expected to diminish further as a result of the approaching heatwave in California’s San Joaquin Valley. Markets are firming.

California Valencia:

  • Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Valencia Oranges are available
  • Remaining supplies are dominated by 88-count and larger sizes
  • Smaller sizes (113- and 138-count packs) will further tighten until the new crop Navel harvest begins in late October/early November
  • Quality concerns include softness and re-greening

Imported Oranges:

  • Chilean fruit is being shipped into the West Coast while South African stocks are available on the East Coast
  • 113-count and larger pack sizes dominate availability; supply is meeting demand
  • Chilean imports are expected to be on the market through late October/early November
  • The South African season will run through early to mid-October
  • Quality is good
