UPDATE: SQUASH

February 16, 2022

Mexican squash supplies (crossing into Nogales, Arizona) are increasing, easing prices. Markon First Crop Zucchini and Yellow Squash are available.

  • Mexican volume is rising due to great weather in the state of Sinaloa
    • Quality is good: medium sizes are abundant
    • The harvesting transition to northern state of Sonora will occur in mid-March
  • Florida production is sporadic due to recent cold weather
    • Yellow squash is limited
    • Quality is average: scuffing and scarring are concerns
    • Growers anticipate more consistent supplies by mid-March
  • Expect lower prices over the next several weeks
