Fresh Farms: bell pepper and corn season update

Bell Peppers and Corn Season Update

Fresh Farms BB #:194140 – Volumes remain light due to earlier weather in both the Florida & Mexico growing regions but overall quality has been outstanding mostly in part due to more temperate growing conditions. We look for conditions to remain the same through the first of the New Year.

If we had to use a term for the mostly markets, we would say steady. We won’t see any promotable volumes until mid-January with green bell pepper and corn.

We are currently growing green bell Pepper, corn and colored bells out of the state of Sinaloa Mexico. We have expanded on all three commodities with the biggest increase being green bell pepper

Green bell pepper market has been steady in the high teens with volume expected to increase in January. Corn market has been really high with demand exceeding supplies, more volume expected in January. Colored bells are expected to start late December with good prices and demand.

These staple commodities tend to move well but giving the consumer recipe ideas especially for grilling will highly increase sales. All of these commodities are flavorful and healthy options with any meal.
