UPDATE: TOMATOES

March 2, 2022

Mexico and Florida tomatoes recent growing conditions have been favorable. Prices are weak. Markon First Crop Tomatoes are available.

  • Mexico continues to supply a steady volume of round, Roma, grape and cherry tomatoes
    • All sizes are available: larger sizes (4×4, 4×5) and XL Romas are abundant this week
    • Overall quality is good
    • Grape tomatoes are a bargain
  • Florida supply is expected to lighten up slightly over the next couple of weeks due to February frost/bloom drop
    • Mature green crops are dominated by 5×6’s and larger; very good quality
    • Romas crops are producing more XL and Jumbo sizes
    • Grape and Cherry tomato quality is hit and miss as growers transition from old to new crops
  • Expect markets to remain depressed over the next couple of weeks
