Weather helping boost quality coming from Chile

Chile has had perfect weather throughout the country. It has been a mild summer so far, and quality of grapes and stone fruit should be great right now.wear

Heat is coming to Immokalee, FL, this Sunday through next Wednesday, with highs in the upper 80s.

In Mexico, a mini heat wave coming to Culiacan and Sinaloa is expected to run through Saturday with highs in the upper 90s for the next four days. This could affect supplies coming out of Nogales over the weekend and early next week. 

Excessive heat is expected in the Key lime-growing region of Michoacan with highs near 100 starting today through next Wednesday. Look for production to pick up over the next week.

In Peru rains in the asparagus-growing regions are expected later this week.
