“We’re starting to see a bit more (out of Mexico),” he said.
Luis Corella, director of Mexican produce for Fresno, Calif.-based Crown Jewels Produce, agreed conditions were improving for squash.
“We’re expecting volumes to pick up again,” he said Jan. 30, an assessment he extended to other vegetable crops.
“The crop that was hit a bit, it was mostly bloom drop in northern Sinaloa,” Corella said. “We’re starting to see the new set come on, so we should be in good shape in two weeks at most.”
