Produce Trends - Nov 21, 2022

Lemon supply and demand are both steady this week. Pricing and quality are good. The new crop of lemons is coming online out of Southern California, with good quality and increasing supply on the market. We have some good deals on juicer-grade product loading out of California and Arizona on the Marketplace now. See Lemon availability.


Lime supplies are good overall and peaking on the 110–175cts. The new Mexican crop is coming out of Veracruz and Yucatan. Smaller-sized fruit is tight. Mexican markets are slightly higher than the US at this time due to differences in demand. According to suppliers, you can expect pricing to increase after the Thanksgiving holiday. See the Marketplace for availability.


The crop out of Washington this year was predicted to be down at least 10%, with some growers now reporting up to a 30% decrease. There is little surplus availability outside of what growers are using to fulfill contracts. Small-sized Granny Smiths are reported to be getting especially tight. Quality is good. See Apple availability.

Produce Trends - May 9, 2022

This week, the orange market is mostly steady, with good supplies on larger fancy grade fruit and tighter supplies on smaller choice fruit. In addition, Valencias are becoming readily available and being used to fill in on the minor size shortages. See Orange availability.


Prices continue to decrease on Conventional Limes out of Mexico. Pricing is lowest on the smaller fruit, but larger fruit is also dropping. We expect this to continue over the next couple of weeks. Please get in touch for any FTL volume needs. We anticipate needing a 5-10 day lead time. Pricing and availability are subject to change daily. See Lime availability.


Carrot supplies remain tight, especially for organic and conventional processed supplies at this time like coins, chunks, sticks, etc. Whole carrots are more readily available. Overall, the market remains challenging, especially for FTL orders. Please check the Marketplace and reach out to your Full Harvest rep for the most up-to-date quotes and availability. See Carrot availability.

Produce Trends - January 24, 2022

Multiple growers report high demand and limited supply of conventional and organic carrots. Rising Omicron cases have exacerbated ongoing labor shortages. Many suppliers find it challenging to find the labor force to pack existing contracts, forcing delayed orders and cancellations. In addition, we are seeing a low supply of chunks & plugs due to a lower yield of jumbos this winter. Out of Mexico, supply is limited on organic carrots, but there is some conventional available. Head to the Marketplace for current availability. See Carrot availability.


The lime market is up this week. Market pricing has been trending upwards due to low yields from recent weather. Medium and small sizes (200 count to 230 count) continue to have the highest volume of availability. See Lime availability.


The orange market has been trending up lately due to limited labor, but supplies are expected to improve this week. Navels are peaking on the smaller 72 count, 88 count, and 56 count fruits. The Kern County growing region has supplied most of the small-sized navels this season. Once harvesting in Kern County is finished in the next two weeks, we expect a limited supply of small oranges for the remainder of the season. See Orange availability.
