This season sure has started out as an exciting one! So far, shippers have experienced
some major highs and lows. With Nogales’ longer season & the northern fruit coming off
the vine earlier every year, we have been able to keep up with the high demand during the
beginning of the season for those tasty West Coast watermelons. Once we got closer to
the end of Nogales’ season we found fruit to be scarce, but still in high demand, driving
the price up until some of the northern regions came into production.
We expect supply & demand to remain strong throughout the rest of the season as the
weather gets warmer & the days get longer! The Western Watermelon Association would
like to wish you all a happy & successful National Watermelon Month. We are
continuing to work hard to bring our delicious West Coast watermelons to the hands of
watermelon lovers everywhere!
