  • Production is past its peak in Baja, Mexico; round, Roma, and grape tomatoes are tight
    • New crop harvests will begin the week of November 13
    • Growers anticipate lower-than-normal volume as Hurricane Hilary disrupted early season plantings
  • Supplies from mainland Mexico (into Nogales, Arizona and South Texas) are limited following recent rains
    • Yields are sporadic with hit-or-miss quality due to weather disruptions and planting gaps
    • The season in Culiacan, Mexico will start in early January

    • The Roma variety is especially tight
    • Volume is steady in Quincy, Florida but will decrease over the next two to three weeks as supplies transition south
