Tomatoes: up $5

The tomato market will experience extreme changes for the next month or so. The local programs in the east are winding up for the year. The crop in North Florida and South Georgia is light on volume and has major weather on the way. California is very light on volume also. Mexico is getting started but there is limited product and quality is all over the board. Roma tomatoes appear to be the shortest product with rounds not far behind.
