A slow start to the onion season coupled with strong demand triggered higher-than-usual prices for U.S. consumers. However, supplies are expected to return to normal later this year after the weather-induced downward trend. California onion yields are looking good, with Georgia and Nevada’s harvest seasons picking up as Texas is winding down.

The higher-than-usual prices should level off by mid-June when New Mexico’s harvest begins. Freezing and cooler weather is impacting some yields and quality in states like Texas and flooding in California isn’t expected to impact quality as much as sizing. Medium-sized onions to jumbo and super colossal-sized onions may decrease slightly, resulting in higher prices for larger onions.
