Supplies of domestic radishes will look limited until early summer
“In the coming weeks, we’ll continue to see a limited supply due to an increased demand, as well as weather playing a large factor into the supply,” she says. “And demand is coming from all markets, but mostly driven by retail.” In turn, pricing of radishes is looking higher. “With demand generally higher than past months, the pricing is higher due to weather and limited supply,” says Monnin.
Short turnaround crop affected by weather
Like many commodities, weather proves to be the largest challenge for supply of the spicy vegetable. “Since radishes are a 30-day crop, supply changes occur rapidly with little notice due to weather conditions,” says Monnin.
That said, radishes are of increasing interest to consumers. “As health conscience consumers look for variety and convenience, radishes are climbing the vegetables trends, especially with millennial consumers,” she adds.
And to boost that convenience factor, Duda has for example ready-to-eat, fresh-cut radish products on offer in three forms of cuts: Radish Ministicks, (a thin radish stick); Radish Coins (a crinkle-cut coin) and the Ready Radish (a radish that’s topped and tailed and ready for consumption). “More than ever, consumers are looking for time saving, fresh-cut vegetables to toss into a variety of dishes,” says Monnin.
