Thursday, November 18, 2010

Central American melon volumes could be down as much as 20 percent this season. A dry growing season should mean excellent quality and peak sizing for melons that make it to the US.

Pompano Beach, Fla.-based Fresh Quest Produce Inc. expects to begin Industrywide, volumes should be down at least 15 percent from last season, continuing a trend that began in 2009.

Costa Rica and Guatemala are seeing the biggest acreage reductions.
