Mexico is looking forward to a good table grape season. Volume out of Sonora, the country’s main table grape growing region, is estimated at 24 million boxes. While this is similar to last year’s volume, the big contrast with last year will be the start of harvest. “We are expected to start significantly earlier, resulting in a less concentrated season and giving us more time to sell the fruit,” says Carlos Bon with Divine Flavor. The first volumes will be shipped by mid-May and by the end of the month, the region will be going full speed. “About two-thirds of the region’s volume will hit the market in June, the heaviest shipping month,” Bon added. The remainder of the volume will be shipped in July.
