Berry Update – 5/23/24

Berries are a staple commodity at this time of year, read more below for what’s happening in the market …

Strawberries:

  • Salinas/Watsonville: Cooler temperatures are keeping production manageable for most shippers. There is still a good amount of fruit available, and volume orders are flexible going into the weekend.
  • Santa Maria: This area is on a downward plant life cycle, with gradually declining numbers expected as we move into June. Below-normal temperatures are slowing production slightly, spreading volume further into next week.

Blueberries:

Several areas are producing blueberries, including Central Mexico, Baja, Central Coast California, and Georgia. We will see an abundance of product over the next few weeks.

Blackberries:

We are experiencing a flush of blackberries currently out of Central Mexico, with very strong increases in production against only moderate demand.

Raspberries:

Recent light supplies have increased to growing availability. Stronger numbers are expected as we move into June.
