Market Update for Tree Fruit

Week of March 18 – March 24

The overall market on Chilean stone fruit has remained largely unchanged with lackluster movement and limited retail demand.  Yellow peach and nectarine pricing continues to remain depressed with very little promotional support in weekly circulars.  Pricing on both peaches and nectarines currently ranges from $12-$16 on 2-layer trays with importers looking for any outlet to move fruit.  Red and black plum supplies are available with 2-layer trays ranging from $15-$17 on red varieties and $16-$18 on black varieties.
