US (CA): Better tomato prices for autumn
Entering the autumn market, tomato demand is high, while production may be low. Tomato prices have been stable for the last few years; however they are currently experiencing an increase.
“Hurricane Odile hit the Southern Baja California Peninsula which destroyed tomato crop and put pressure on the autumn supplies,” explains Ricardo Crisantes of Wholesum Family Farms in Arizona which is also experiencing threats from the weather.
“September and October have been exceptionally rainy for us, and we experienced low light levels.”
Growers of Arizona tomatoes compete with imports from both Mexico and Canada. Wholesum Family Farms distinguishes itself in delivering certified organically grown produce year-round. While retaining their acreage from previous years, they are enthusiastic about the autumn season. “It has been our best start in Arizona since we established production in November 2012,” reflects Crisantes, “The plants look strong and healthy so we expect a good crop.”
