Market Update for Tree Fruit
Week of December 3 – December 9
Early arrivals of Chilean yellow peaches are available on the east coast with overall good quality and condition. General sizing is peaking in the 50 series on 2-layer trays, so most importers will be looking for a premium on 48’s and larger. General FOB’s range from $22-$24 on 2-layer trays with some quotes as high as $26 FOB. Smaller 60 series in volume fill will be quoted between $18-$22. Look for yellow nectarines to start arriving over the next to weeks with opening quotes being similar to that of peaches.
