Green Onions

Dear Ole Tyme Customers:

UPDATE: The heat over the last few weeks in the Mexicali area is starting to cause quality and supply issues on Green Onions.


  • The increased heat in Mexico has caused plants to just stop growing.
  • The Green Onions that are growing are maturing too quickly and are leading to various quality issues (crooked shanks/excess peeling around the root) causing lower yields.
  • The heat/ground temps have kept the production season ahead of schedule and now a supply gap has started.
  • The market will be going up as we move through this gap in supplies.
  • Product grown in this sort of heat tends to break down quicker post-harvest.
  • Expect supplies to be tight the next 3-4 weeks.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your Sales Representative.
