Bell pepper markets high

At the end of October, Hidalgo, TX-based Riverside Distributing Ltd. was enjoying strong markets for Bell peppers, which the firm ships throughout the year.

Kris Poiriez of Riverside Distributing said that overall Mexican produce arrivals into the McAllen area had picked up but the peak volume was not yet achieved.

As to Bell peppers, “the market is good right now, after we had a horrible spell for three weeks.”

Red Bells were going for $12.25. Yellows were $11.25 and orange bell peppers were in the $8-9 range in late October.

Riverside is in Hidalgo, TX.
