What you need to know this week:


In South Florida and Mexico, we continue to see very light supply on cucumber, but its slowly improving! Squash and bell peppers are readily available, and quality is outstanding.

Tomato production has improved this week in Florida, but we are still far from normal for this time of year due to several weather impacts over the past three months. We expect lower production and higher than normal market prices, but nothing too concerning.

The corn market will be very short as the fallout from last month’s freeze is now affecting the crop, causing extremely low yields and more loss than expected. The hot pepper market seems to be staying firm as cold temps and weather damage are causing shortfalls this season, with Serrano and Anaheim the highest priced and shortest available.

Honeydew and cantaloupe have become quite a challenge due to cooler weather and will most likely not improve until mid-February.

Weather in Yuma remains cool with frost setting in most mornings. Forecast is for cooler weather to continue into early next week.
