This Week’s Highlights – December 18, 2017

  • Mangoes – Good supply and good availability.
  • Acorn, Butternut & Spaghetti Squash – Now available, good quality and good supply.
  • Brussels Sprouts – Very high prices and tighter supplies remain, but are leveling out. Quality is improving. Expect improvements in about 2 to 3 weeks.
  • Bananas – Demand remains firm and quality is good, but we are seeing short supplies across the country and expect a shortage to continue through 2018 due to virus impacts.
  • Tomatoes – Demand exceeds supply; do not anticipate any relief until the week of Christmas. FOB prices are up and very unstable this week.  Reminder: DO NOT store tomatoes in the refrigerator, it causes the fruit to lose flavor and become mealy.
