Mexico’s avocado industry expected to have record-breaking year

Importers of Mexican avocados expect another record-size crop of high-quality fruit.

Mother Nature made her presence known at the beginning of the deal, but it didn’t wind up having much of an effect, said Gary Caloroso, marketing director of Giumarra Agricom International, Escondido, Calif.

“There was some rain early on in Michoacan, but it hasn’t affected harvesting, and the consistent volume Mexico is supplying the United States,” Caloroso said.

Giumarra expects Mexican volumes to continue to increase because of more acreage in production now in Michoacan, and more being sent to the U.S., Caloroso said . . .
