Pummelos and oranges maintained a firm 1-2 lead on Produce Market Guide the week of Jan. 6, while specialty seville oranges garnered the No. 3 spot, cucumbers moved up three places to No. 4, and mandarin oranges and tangerines rounded out the top 5.
Lettuce and apples slipped from No. 3 and No. 4 the week of Dec. 30 to No. 6 and No. 7 last week, and specialty burro and manzano bananas claimed the No. 8 and No. 9 places. Chili peppers jumped from No. 20 the previous week to claim the No. 10 spot.
Cauliflower rejoined the list last week at No. 12, and organic pears got some interest, reappearing at No. 13. Perhaps with a nod to the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday, strawberries appeared at No. 14, and Super Bowl favorite avocados were No. 15. Continuing the citrus theme, limes joined the list at No. 18. Okra reappeared at No. 19, and sweet potatoes rounded out the top 20.
