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.
