Prices remain elevated. Supplies are extremely limited.
California – Salinas and Santa Maria Valleys
- Quality problems persist; cooler temperatures, shorter days, wind, and overnight frosts have shortened shelf-life
- External pitting, scarring, small sizing, and water damage are prevalent
- Heavy culling has reduced yields at the field level
- Expect limited supplies to persist as the season wraps up in early December
Imports – Northern Mexico and Peru
- Peruvian supplies are tight but are helping to supplement the market; quality is slightly better
- Some product grown in Northern Mexico is beginning to enter the market; production is behind schedule
- Markets will remain elevated until harvesting ramps up in mid- to late December
- Imported ‘semi-stringless and stringed’ varieties are more readily available, at comparable pricing (loading in LA)
