Pineapple supplies remain extremely scarce in Costa Rica, Mexico, and South America. Historically, pineapples become limited from mid-June through August. Markets continue to rise; coverage will be sporadic with pro rates and size substitutions expected over the next four to six weeks.

  • A seasonal decline in overall supply is typically expected from mid-June through August
  • This season, with the adverse weather conditions experienced in Costa Rica, supply shortages are more extreme than in years past
  • All sizes are extremely limited
  • Quality is fair with occasional lots showing decay, softness, mold, and overripeness
