Costa Rican and Mexican pineapple supplies remain scarce. Volume will remain limited through the Mother’s Day holiday pull, especially larger size (five-through seven-count).

  • Supplies from the West Coast and Texas will remain limited into May
  • East Coast volume will remain low through late April
  • Multiple cold fronts triggered plants to flower early, causing shortages and smaller size distribution
  • Limited production of large size fruit; eight-count pineapples are mainly available
  • Expect demand to increase in late April/early May in preparation for Mother’s Day holiday
  • Expect increased pricing until volume increases early-to-mid May
