Tomatoes will be EXTREME prices for several weeks, due to end of summer crops, volume of fall crops in the south affected by the rains the past week in the southern growing areas. Do not expect much volume increases until Mexico and Southern Florida begin the winter crop in late Nov/Dec.

Expect quality to be JUST fair with lighter color and maybe sizing problems as any available fruit WILL be harvested before peak maturity, put in gas rooms, to: #1 take advantage of the markets and #2 fill demands with anything that looks like a tomato.
