Though quality was excellent, Cole said sizing was smaller than last season.

“We had a little bit of a cold snap the past few weeks,” he said. “It’s not bringing on the size that we’d like.”

Cole said he expected sizing to rebound as the deal progressed through the month.

Early onions out of Mexicali weren’t exposed to unexpected disease or pest problems, said Tom Russell, president of Salinas-based Pacific International Marketing Inc., which expected to finish its California deal by about Nov. 1 or Nov. 12.

Russell said his company shipped light volumes from Mexicali in early October.
