Over the next few weeks, the industry will see a significant decline in production of Californian and arrivals of Peruvian fruit. With these key regions tapering off for the season, Mexico will have little to no competition in the market place.  We anticipate a volatile market into September, as there are concerns as to how Mexico will react being the main source for fruit.  What will the harvest volume look like? What will the growers demand as far as field costs?  Chilean arrivals are expected to hit the US mid- to late-September.
Current Mexican crop "Flora Loca" will run through September. In October we will be fully into new crop "Aventajada" fruit. The  growing region of Michoacan, Mexico is seeing a significant amount of rain week in and week out. We can expect to see a good amount of Lenticel spotting on the surface of the skin. It does not affect the internal quality and become less apparent as the fruit ripens. 


Highlights:  Jersey Tomatoes, Peaches,  Corn, Eggplants, Peppers, Zucchini, and Watermelons.
