UPDATE: CANTALOUPE AND HONEYDEW MELONS
May 18, 2021
The domestic cantaloupe season is underway; Markon First Crop Cantaloupes are available. Domestic honeydew production will begin next week.
Mexican and offshore supplies remain on the market; stocks will continue shipping through May
Domestic cantaloupe stocks are dominated by 9-count, followed by 12-count sizes; 15-count melons are extremely limited
The domestic honeydew crop also leans heavily toward large sizes (especially 5-count), with very few 6- or 8-count fruit at the start of the season
New crop domestic melons are commanding higher prices than Mexican and offshore supplies
Cantaloupe prices are higher
Honeydew markets are rising
