Blackberries remain extremely limited industry-wide. Demand far exceeds supply as Mexico's seasons have come to an end and California is slowly ramping up. Georgia has limited harvest, but if loading there is an option, we may have a better shot of coverage. Although supplies are expected to remain very limited for the next 1-2 weeks, we will have some light central valley harvest starting in California next week. This in conjunction with Santa Maria, Salinas and Watsonville will hopefully bring some relief to this gap. Quality is being reported as strong, and market prices are high.

Tomatoes (Eastern)

Central Florida has finished their crops for the season. Northern Florida is starting in a light way. However, it will still be a week or so before the harvest brings forth enough volume to strengthen the supply chain. Shortly after that, South Carolina and Tennessee are expected to begin production as June closes out. The market may currently be at its peak with more supply waiting to hit the market. Heavy rains have saturated the last of the crops coming from the central portion of Florida directly affecting the quality of most of the fruit there. As fields transition, buyers look to North Florida and South Carolina for better quality tomatoes. Rounds are steady from last week and forecasted to remain steady moving lower in the next 7 to 10 days. Roma tomatoes are still limited in availability with Mexico being the main growing region for now. As the last of the grape tomatoes from Palmetto sell-off, quality is showing the effects of harsh weather shortening the supply of good quality tomatoes further. With little coming out of the north this week, there is partial relief underway for better quality offerings improving further through the rest of the month.

Roma tomatoes are steady with excellent quality from all regions, but markets are getting pressure to move higher with eastern buyers strengthening demand. Grape tomatoes remain short. Fobs have surpassed the mid-twenties. Supplies are increasing out of Baja in tandem with new operations in the eastern U.S. helping to alleviate the climb in pricing that has occurred over the past two weeks.
