Avocado (California)

California growers are harvesting better volume, but still less than they would normally this time of year. Volume will continue to build through March and into April. The overall crop estimated has been reduced based on the fruit not sizing due to the lack of water. It now looks like California may have a higher than normal percentage of smaller fruit.

Berries (Blackberries) Alert

Rain, wind and thunderstorms affected production in Central Mexico in recent weeks. Damaging hail was also reported at some ranches. This is a big concern for un-hooped acreage as it will cause significant setbacks, some estimates have dropped by 50%. Along with this, cold weather hit soon after and even brought snow in some of the higher elevations. Supply will be tight for the next 2-3 weeks. As far as quality, watch for broken fruit, red cell and soft berries. Holy Week in Mexico is also presenting challenges with labor for harvests and hours of service at the border crossings.






- Tom Smith

Alerts:
Inclement weather in Central Mexico over the previous week has disrupted production and decreased harvest volumes. Supplies will remain short for at least the next 2-3 weeks. Holy Week in Mexico is also presenting challenges with labor for harvests and hours of service at the border crossings.

Central Mexico is still the largest production region, followed by CA. We should begin to see more CA production coming from Santa Maria, Watsonville and Salinas shortly after Easter. Supplies have been consistent over the past several weeks but we are seeing some setbacks from recent weather and now lower production and labor shortages due to Holy Week in Mexico. Hours are more limited at the borders and laborers are fewer to harvest and transport the fruit.

Sizing is mostly in the mid-upper teens. Central Mexico is struggling with availability after weather over the previous weeks. Many shippers have already ended their Mexican import program for the season. FL production is beginning to fall rapidly and many shippers will end for the season after Easter pull is over, others are already done. Demand for CA strawberries will continue to increase as MX and FL programs wind down for the season.
