60ct and 70ct Avocados...up, up and away!

The industry continues to be short on 60s and smaller, particularly 60/70s. The market on those two sizes has gone up tremendously in the past three weeks. I do not expect their cost will drop through the end of the year. 32/36s are an eye sore for the 2 largest shippers. I have heard very cheap delivered costs to the wholesale markets in the north east. We will continue to see plenty of large fruit in the pack outs. 48s are steady as she goes and should continue to be steady. The Mexican growers have increased our field costs across the board, but in some cases the market is not to that level at this time. Organically 48s continue to be plentiful, 60s are very tight and 70s are mostly being bagged and moving well.
