Melons (Cantaloupe, honeydew & watermelon)

Cantaloupe and Honeydew prices are trending down as volume increases. Central American imports loading out of Florida will continue for the next 2 weeks and supply out of Nogales is picking up. The Imperial Valley, California region is getting started as well. Watermelon supply is steady out of Florida and Mexico with good quality. See Melon availability.

lemon

Growers are reporting steady supply and demand of conventional and organic lemons in California. You can expect organic supply to remain steady through May and conventional through late June. There will be a gap in the summer from July to September, so we recommend stocking up on volume now to ensure you are covered. Mexico ramps up in late August and California will be back with a strong supply towards the end of October. The market during the summer gap will rely on imports from Chile and South Africa, but this product is primarily in cartons and fancy/choice grade. There is very limited juice grade coming from overseas. See Lemon availability.

CUCUMBER

East-coast cucumber supply is steady, with Georgia getting started this week. In Nogales, the spring crop is strong with solid availability and good quality. The Baja region continues to grow in volume as more growers come online. See Cucumber availability.

Produce Trends - November 15, 2021

Orange

We are seeing limited volume on fancy and juice grade oranges out of Mexico, but availability should improve towards the end of the month as we enter into peak season. California Navels are high in quality (lots of fancy grade), with little choice and juice grade supply available. Supply should increase in 2-3 weeks or so. California Valencias are close to finished at this time, but please reach out if you are in need. See orange availability.

Cucumber

The majority of cucumber supply right now is coming out of Nogales, AZ and McAllen, TX. In the Southeast, Georgia is winding down, and Central Florida is just getting started. Availability could lower later into the winter, so we recommend taking advantage of solid pricing and high volumes now. See cucumber availability.

Lemon

District 3 (Coachella & Mesa, California) is fully online and shipping new-crop lemons out of Riverside. Quality is really good on fancy and juice grade. Suppliers in the desert & Yuma region should start harvesting soon, although later than expected due to rain. Mexican growers are finishing up harvests in the next week. Expect the Mexican season to fully end after Thanksgiving, causing California prices to increase. You can find great pricing for juicer lemon on the Marketplace now. See lemon availability.
