Mexico tomato production is ramping up due to favorable weather, while Florida growers are facing near-freezing temperatures. Markon First Crop Tomatoes are available.
- Mexican cherry, grape, Roma, and vine ripe tomato production is increasing out of the Culiacan, Guaymus, and Guasave growing regions due to ideal weather
- Quality is very good
- Overall demand is weak
- All sizes are available
- Florida is experiencing very cold nights (low 30s are predicted this weekend) and rain which slows plant growth and will reduce harvesting
- Round mature green tomato quality is good, but some wind scarring is being observed
- Roma tomato supplies are adequate; large-size crown picks are the best quality
- Grape tomatoes volume is down slightly as some growers shift to Mexican crops
- Expect steady round, Roma, and cherry tomato markets over the next week; grape tomatoes remain a bargain
