DNE’s Swords said buyers should look for supplies of honey tangerines through the end of March.
Honey tangerines were selling at $18.50-19.50 for 80s at the Atlanta terminal market on Feb. 25, the USDA reported.
“There are enough supplies on a weekly basis to cover everyday needs,” Swords said.
“Retailers may not be able to promote them as heavily as in prior years, but they will still have enough for regular sales.”
Tangerine shipments typically end in late April.
