Pineapple supplies are scarce in Costa Rica, Mexico, and South America. Historically, pineapples become limited from mid-June through August. In particular, large sizes (five- and six-count fruit) will tighten. Expect rising markets; size substitutions may be necessary to fill orders.

  • Large sizes have become scarce due to dry conditions
  • Smaller fruit (seven- and eight-count sizes) are expected to dominate the market over the next four to six weeks
  • Forecasts indicate dry conditions for June and the potential for heavy rainfall (El Nino) heading into July
  • Expect stressed plants resulting in small-size fruit and elevated markets
