U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement seasonal perishable products - weekly update

Blueberries, strawberries, tomatoes and green bell peppers remain widely available

Seasonal changes have led to a shift in the commodities of interest for this report. Blueberries, strawberries, tomatoes, and green bell peppers of both domestic and imported origins remain widely available and reported, while asparagus will replace cucumbers ahead of the Easter pull and in anticipation of the start of the Peru season. This list will be revisited regularly in order to maintain an accurate representation of the current trade situation affecting shippers of perishable commodities in North America.

Movement of Mexican asparagus crossings through Calexico California and San Luis Arizona expected to remain about the same. Trading was active at higher prices. Supplies very light for spot market sales, and organic supplies in too few hands to establish a market. Production is much lighter than normal due to dramatic temperature shifts and high winds over the past two months. Peru asparagus is expected to hit the market by late March, ahead of Easter pull for holiday promotions.

Mexican blueberry crossings through Arizona, California, and Texas movement expected about the same. Trading was fairly slow early and moderate later at slightly lower prices. Quality and condition are both reported as variable, but Mexican blueberries continue to show stronger demand than Chilean which are showing consistently compromised quality.

Green bell peppers movement from Mexico crossing through Nogales, Arizona expected about the same. Trading on green was fairly active at much higher prices. Quality is reported as generally good. Movement of green bell peppers from Mexico crossing through Texas is expected about the same.
