We are seeing high demand on all types of carrots - organic and conventional out of the US and Canada. Supply out of Mexico is mostly conventional, and it has been light due to an unusually wet winter. We expect Mexican supply to increase as the season ramps up in April. Organic supply should improve in May when additional supply comes online as the California growing region transitions. See Carrot availability.
Ginger supply is still tight across the board as we are in the low season for availability. Supplies should increase in July. You can expect availability out of Miami to tighten even more as less product has been shipped out of Peru and prices are expected to rise. Lead time is on the higher side to aggregate full truck load quantities. See Ginger availability.
Demand and pricing have strengthened this week on both conventional and organic Valencias out of Mexico. Harvests and packing are back to a regular schedule, resulting in steady supply. The organic season was originally estimated to end in April, but is now likely going through mid-May. The Conventional season will last until late June. You can expect California Valencias to start in mid-May or June and run through Sept. or Oct. See Orange availability.
