Round tomato supplies are tightening; markets are rising. Roma tomato supplies remain adequate with lower markets. Markon First Crop (MFC) Tomatoes are available.

  • Florida volume is very light due to bloom loss following January’s unfavorable cold and rainy weather; demand has shifted to Mexico
    • Quality is good to fair with growers moving into second and third picks
    • Smaller (6×7) round tomatoes are more prevalent
    • Expect lighter supplies over the next two to three weeks with bloom drop in January and overall less acreage planted
  • Mexican Roma and round tomato production is limited following cold weather in Culiacan; demand is strong
    • Quality is good as growers move into new lots
    • Supplies are dominated by larger size rounds and Romas (4×4 and 4×5 packs)
    • Grape and cherry tomato supplies are adequate; prices are slightly lower
  • Expect Roma and round tomato prices to rise over the next two to three weeks
