OK, Avo’s are now arriving Saturday.
There was as mentioned previously a 5 day Hurricane based harvesting gap of 5 days – avocados aren’t harvested in the rain. Then there was a surge of several hundred more trucks every day heading north as markets caught up. What we forgot to think about was big border delays as those trucks moved into the U.S., hence another 1 day delay. Unfortunately there is another hurricane brewing (currently not yet a tropical storm) in the same place, off the coast of Acapulco, and it’s outer rain bands are skimming over Michoacan. We’re hoping this one stays out to sea and doesn’t affect Mexico the way the last one did.
