We are mid-season with Mexico's Aventajada c
rop. Fruit is cutting great and eats well. Please note:
Mid to late season avocados have
higher dry matter than early season fruit.
This means they
ripen faster than early season avos.
The celery market is very active. Demand clearly exceeds supplies and this will continue throughout the month of February, could be longer. The heavy rains in California growing regions of Oxnard/Santa Maria, coupled with cold weather over past few weeks has
slowed down the growth and harvesting of this commodity. Supplies from Yuma, Arizona are very limited as well. Escalated pricing on contracts and value-added items are in effect.
