Volumes will be promotable but moderate through April, Ciruli said. In May, greater volumes from Mexico will begin arriving, when the Nayarit region comes into production, he said.
A down year last season in Nayarit should mean heavy volumes from the region in 2013, he said.
Sizes were smaller than last year in late February, with fruit peaking on 18s and 20s, Ciruli said. The quality and appearance were excellent, however.
“It’s quite a bit cleaner than last year, and eating very well.”
