Avocado: Production is way up this week as all producing areas in Mexico are open for business. Growers are planting avocados by the tens of thousands of acres every year to try to keep up demand, and in non-traditional growing areas. Pricing should stay stable for a month or two, before harvest estimates are established for the 2nd flowering which can produce an abundance for Feb – June harvests. Slowly our selection of “non-Fancy” which we sell in 11kg lugs will increase – those are fruits with some surface marking (from rubbing against branches) or sun-burning (crimson patches) that sell a discount. The later into the season we get, and the longer the fruit remains on the trees, the more selection there will be of Cat 2 fruit. We’ve just received the first of these this week, but only 84 count.
