Low quality limes saturate the market
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The U.S. is getting low quality limes from Mexico, and the situation is hurting farmers on both sides of the border.
Ag officials in Mexico say the lime-packing industry is saturating the U.S. market with a low quality product. They say the situation is causing a drop in the price of limes in the United States, which is the main importer of this citrus.
Ag officials say the small lemons are reducing demand. The drop in rates are leaving Mexican growers in the red, and American importers are having a hard time selling the imported low-quality citrus.
