For the week of December 3rd

Close contact with our growers about current weather and growing conditions allows us to give weekly updates to keep you informed. We offer current quality and market updates for each category of produce all in one place. Here are some products to buy with caution this week.

Raspberries:
Supplies from Mexico are starting to decline and are expected to be very tight over the next 3-4 weeks. Quality has been good but prices are on the rise.

Watermelon:
Central Sonora region of Mexico production is down. This growing region has experienced cool night temperatures affecting the late fall crop.
The winter crop is expected to start Mid December out of the Jalisco
and Colima growing areas. The quality overall has been okay, and we can expect higher markets.

Lemons:
The California lemon markets are active. With this year’s desert crop much lighter in volume, shippers are seeing production starting to fall off. The Central Valley has started but only with limited volumes.

Oranges:
California navels still have a very strong demand, we are seeing demand exceed supplies on 88’s and smaller sizes. We can expect small sized fruit to be short in supply all season long. Quality has looked good.
