The new growing areas for leaf lettuce, romaine and romaine hearts are not in full
production yet and the result is a limited supply and higher prices. However iceberg
seems to be ahead of the curve and prices are a bit lower this week. We are seeing a
slow recoveries in the cauliflower and broccoli fields and prices have started to fall.
Rainy weather in Central Mexico has really made it difficult for the lime harvest and
prices have really sky rocketed on all sizes of limes. The rain has also put a damper on the watermelon harvest so you will see higher prices onall watermelons.
Romaine hearts remain cheaper then whole heads of romaine. Broccoli crowns remain
slightly cheaper than regular bunched broccoli, grape tomatoes are cheaper than the
round cherry tomatoes and green zucchini is much cheaper than yellow zucchini.
Limes, raspberries and watermelon prices are all higher this week.
