What you need to know this week:


In South Florida and Mexico, we continue to see steady supply on slicer cucumber, green squash, and tomatoes. Volume on pepper is down, but quality is outstanding! The corn market continues to be short, and we are hoping to see improvements over the next 3 weeks.

The hot pepper market seems to be staying firm as cold temperatures 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-late March.

Weather in the desert has turned from the cold weather they have been having to much warmer days and nights. Central and Southern Cali have another round of rain coming with 3” to 5” inches (possibly more in some areas) in the forecast through the weekend and into next week.
