The Lemon Market is Rising

November 07, 2017

The lemon market is rising. The seasons in Chile and Mexico are ending, leaving California as the primary growing region.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) and Markon Essentials (ESS) Lemons are sporadic; packer label is being substituted as needed
  • The season for MFC and ESS Lemons from Mexico has come to an end; packer label supplies loading in South Texas will be sporadic for one to two more weeks
  • The Chilean season has come to an end
    • California supplies will remain tight through November until San Joaquin Valley production ramps up in December; the majority of supplies are being harvested in the Arizona/California desert region
