On March 16, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported prices of $20-22 for 19.8-pound containers of loose hayward 23-25s from Italy. On March 31, 2009, the first date prices were available, Chilean haywards 23-25s sold for $16.

Reports on early shipments indicated good volumes, quality and size profile, Richardson said.

Cappelluti said early-season quality was very good, with fruit sizing slightly smaller than normal. Fruit was peaking on 33s and 36s instead of 27s and 30s, he said.
