We started harvest in Tamaulipas, MX this past weekend and things are off to a good start there! The quality and brix are good and volume should ramp up quickly. Sonora, MX should hit temps in the low 90’s by next week, that will help to bring volume on and should reach full production sometime in late April.
South FL should be producing light volume over the next couple of weeks, with production increasing after the first week of April. Central FL production should start in mid to late April; the crops in that region look very healthy and the forecast continues to be favorable. North FL continues to enjoy great growing conditions as well, and is tracking for an on-time to early start in mid-May.
Georgia continues to be faced with cooler and wet weather during the planting process. It’s very possible that any delays seen during planting could be made up if we experience a meaningful stretch of hot weather, which is not at all uncommon for Georgia.
