UPDATE: TOMATOES

February 10, 2022

Despite some cooler evening temperatures in Mexico, tomato markets remain steady. Markon First Crop Tomatoes are available.

  • Mexican cherry, grape, Roma, and vine ripe tomato volume is lower due to cooler evenings
    • Large-size round (4×4 and 4×5) and Roma tomatoes are more abundant; prices are weak
    • Overall quality is good
    • All sizes are available
  • Florida crops experienced a bloom drop due to last week’s frost which will effect volume in early March
    • Round tomato crop size has increased due to cooler temperatures last week; 6×6 sizes are snug
    • Roma, grape and cherry tomato supplies are tightening
    • Quality is best in the newer fields
  • Expect markets to remain steady for the next two weeks
