In the Nogales, Arizona market of the United States (US), the availability of organic slicer cucumbers in 36-count and 42-count boxes remained limited in the main distributor's warehouse during W39. The volume of this product has been impacted by adverse climate conditions in the primary Mexican growing state of Sonora during the 2023 season. Despite these challenges, the available product maintains good quality, and demand continues to exhibit strength.
As of the end of W39, price quotations for organic slicer cucumbers stood at USD 27 to 28 per 36-count boxes and USD 25 to 26 per 42-count boxes.
Michoacan and Jalisco are gradually increasing their volume of exports to the US market as the seasonal transition unfolds in the initial weeks of October. This shift in supply dynamics is forecasted to result in a more stable price trend and potentially help keep prices steady.
