Prices are elevated. Supplies are limited due to industry wide quality challenges.

California – Salinas and Santa Maria Valleys

  • End of season quality issues have arisen; cooler temperatures, shorter days, wind, and increased precipitation has reduced yields
  • Culling product is hindering yields at the field level, reducing industry wide supplies
  • External pitting, russeting, scarring, water damage, and bloom drop have become increasingly prevalent
  • Limited supplies will continue as the season winds down over the next three to four weeks

Mexico – Mexicali/Sonora

  • Product grown in Northern Mexico is set to enter the market near the end of October
  • Expect elevated markets until production ramps up in mid-November
