Green Bell Pepper volume out of Nogales remains limited. Supplies will remain consistent for the next few weeks, before winding down in late April. Quality is mostly good. The market has strengthened, still mostly medium and small sizes available. Green bell peppers are also available, in light supply, to load in Coachella. High volume expected out of Coachella in late April / early May. An unusually cold storm last week has slowed production in Coachella. No major freeze damage was reported, but quality and production may be an issue for the duration of the crop

Red and Yellow Bell Pepper supplies are still available to load in Nogales, from Mexico. Field grown colored bell peppers ( elongated ) are available, but mostly greenhouse varieties being offered. The market has weakened, quality is still mostly good. Volume is consistent with the start of the spring crop from Sonora, Mexico. Coachella is due to begin harvesting red and yellow bell peppers in mid to late April. An unusually cold storm last week slowed production and maturity, possibly delaying the start of the spring harvest for colored peppers in Coachella

Production is expected to increase this week with good availability by the weekend. Quality has been improving, although we are still seeing some occasional white shoulders. Market prices will begin to taper off slowly this week and I expect to see another decrease next week, as volume increases. Salinas / Watsonville areas did get a good shot of rain over the weekend and this is delaying harvest this week. However, we do expect production to pick up by next week with more options to load in these areas.

Citrus (Limes)

Limes continue to be a challenge as more rain is expected in Mexico later this week. Shippers are expecting to be out of harvest Wednesday and Thursday, then try to harvest as much as possible Friday to cover orders for the front part of next week. With the markets prices being as high as they have been, growers are harvesting all the fruit on the trees, leaving very little to size up. Because of this, large size limes (175-110) are very limited. Market prices on the smaller sizes have come down slightly, but large size prices are firm. This will be the case until the weather warms up enough to push growth.

Similarly, roma tomato supplies have rebounded and available at half the prices published just 2 weeks ago. Following suit, grape and cherry tomatoes in the bite size category are selling for the lowest prices of the year.
