Featured Market Alerts:
Bell Peppers – Markets are high on both coasts. Limited FL supplies keep pressure on both coasts. Once spring crops get going, yields will be below normal until March. Quality is ok. Due to lack of warm temperatures, colored bells are still limited; quality is ok, but greening is still prevalent.
Strawberries - Strawberry production at CMEX continues to increase slightly. Due to overall shortages in California and Florida, McAllen, Texas has seen an increase in demand. California's yields have been hampered by recent rains. In order to avoid plant diseases caused by moisture, growers strip fruit to maintain plant health. In the area this week, there was a much-needed drying period of 3 to 4 days. We are expecting more rain this coming weekend which will further increase difficulties in harvesting. Through the end of next week, California and Baja supplies will remain spotty. Over the next few weeks, Florida's production is expected to increase. It is normal for crews to dodge sporadic rain fronts this time of year. Increased yields depend entirely on warmer temperatures. Plant growth and production have been stunted by recent cold temperatures. When temperatures normalize, we should see significant increases.
Onions - In the Northwest, the market remains extreme. Mexican-grown onions are crossing in insufficient volume.View Full Report
