UPDATE: SQUASH

May 26, 2022

Squash supplies are being affected by inclement weather this week as new crops come online on both coasts.

  • The Mexican spring season is quickly winding down
    • Average quality is reported during grading
    • Scuffing and mechanical damage are the main issues
  • California production is underway in the San Joaquin Valley and Santa Maria
    • Cool temperatures (65˚F) in Santa Maria are slowing plant growth/reducing yields
    • Quality is good
  • East Coast growers are harvesting in both Florida and Georgia
    • Overall quality is good, but there have been some reports of scuffing/discoloration concerns in yellow squash
    • Rain showers will delay harvest today in Georgia
  • Expect slightly higher markets over the next two weeks
