    • Quality is average
    • 6×6 and 6×7 round tomatoes are limited
    • Cherry tomatoes are extremely tight
    • Michigan production is expected to start at the beginning of August
  • Mexican Roma and round tomato harvesting has decreased for summer
    • The Baja Peninsula (passing through San Diego, California) will ship lower volume of grape/cherry tomatoes over the next two weeks as growers transition to new fields
