In Mexico, meanwhile, importers the week of Sept. 24 were still working through what could be the biggest flora loca crop seen in some time, Wedin said.
“It’s made for good promotions,” he said.
The off-bloom deal will likely wind down the week of Oct. 1, with new-crop Mexican shipments picking up where it left off, Wedin said.
“It looks like a big-sized crop,” he said of the 2012-13 Mexican crop.
Wileman also expected a big Mexican crop. Mission Produce expected to transition from flora local to the regular Mexican crop the week of Oct. 1.
