Prices remain elevated. Supplies are limited as the domestic season is winding down.

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 size, and water damage are prevalent, lowering yields from the field
  • 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
  • Stocks from Northern Mexico are beginning to enter the market; however, reports indicate harvests remain approximately 7-10 days behind schedule
  • Markets will remain elevated until production ramps up in mid- to late December
