Season is very good for melons.

After a bad year in 2020, South American farmers are expecting a very good 2021. 

The quality is very high and the stocks are higher than last year. Main producing countries like Costa Rica, Honduras and Guatemala give all positive signs. The farmers need a good season again. Although the season started bit later than normal, big quantities should arrive starting week 14 till 18. The demand is high, but normally the available quantities will meet the demands. Last years there is an increase of demand from Europa and Asia. 

The only problem they now face is the lack of available containers to ship the fruits around the world and the actual high container prices. That will be surely a difficult challenge.
