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)
