What’s Affecting The Price?

Rain, extreme heat, and humidity in Mexico and California have impacted quality and shelf life, which contributes to low yields/availability. The new crop season will start in October but they have been impacted by summer heat so volumes may be lower. Crossings from Mexico are currently steady. Market continues to be very strong


175 and 200 counts of limes are dominating the market, you may be able to get better prices if you buy those pack sizes.
