Tropical Harvest Update

For 3/23/20

COVID-19 has dramatically changed the landscape. With spring being an important transition time for nearly all tropical crops, this has led to a variety of challenges in logistics, operations, staffing, production estimates and more. We’re working hard to keep you supplied and informed during these trying times.

Persian Limes - MX

It is still too early to tell how the coronavirus will impact Mexico’s ability to pack and ship limes in the weeks to come, as it is also too early to tell how long retail demand will keep the breakneck pace of the last week.

Mexico has limes to ship and supplies can also be augmented with Guatemalan, Colombian and other smaller producing countries.
