What you need to know this week:
In South Florida, as well as Mexico, we continue to see lighter supply and firmer markets on green pepper, zucchini, and yellow squash.
Tomato production continues to improve in Florida, but we are far from normal for this time of year due to several weather impacts over the past three months. We expect lower production, higher than normal market prices but nothing too concerning.
The hot pepper market seems to be staying firm as cold temps and weather damage are really 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.
In Yuma, supplies continue to increase on most items and markets are stabilizing.
