US(FL): Weather disrupts radish production

Warm weather followed by rain has disrupted several winter vegetable crops in Florida. Supplies of radishes from the state have been affected, and growers are not expecting to catch up with lagging production until after the holidays.



“After warmer-than-normal weather, it has rained continuously since the start of December,” said Jeff Walker of TC Marketing. “So in front of the Christmas pull, we have experienced rough weather that has put us behind.” Reduced supplies have kept prices up. On December 15, prices for a carton of 30 six-ounce film bags were between $6.95 and $7.95. 

“After the holiday push, we'll catch up with supplies and prices will come down,” said Walker. “Everything will be fine once the weather straightens out.” Supplies from Florida are expected to last through mid-May and then transition to Ohio.
