Update on the avocado price surge: As of August 15, prices are in the low 80’s and will continue to rise. The California crop has fallen well short of expected volume. As our season finishes early, the recent heat wave has further complicated our lack of supply. The Mexican growers are also suffering in a similar fashion and are sending fewer boxes to the border. Typically, Chilean fruit would be brought in to ease pressure. This year, Chilean fruit will only be sent to the East coast. We may see some relief from Peruvian imports toward the end of the month. Unfortunately, there is no substitute or other option. Read what Jim Boyce had to say in the Sacramento Bee.
