UPDATE: READY-SET-SERVE (RSS) CILANTRO

September 21, 2022

The cilantro market is rising.

  • Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) Cilantro is available
  • Recent elevated temperatures in Oxnard, Salinas, and Santa Maria, California are impacting yields; burn, seeder, small size, and yellowing are reducing harvestable volume at the field level by 40-50%
  • RSS Cilantro is currently achieving specified quality and shelf-life but there is potential for early breakdown due to heat-related stress  
  • The Texas cilantro season is forecast to start in mid-October and will help increase industry supplies as California fields rebound
  • Expect elevated markets through mid-October, at minimum, until younger plantings reach harvest maturity
