- Almonds – The monthly shipment report released in October for September shipments, showed a reduction of 8% against September 2013. But even with this highly disappointing new crop of 1.85b lbs it is still the 4th largest Californian almond crop in history
- Hazels – Over the first week or two of October prices from Turkey peaked and since started a path of downward price correction.
Apricots – Forward prices have eased since our last report and to reflect a significant resistance and reduction in global demand for apricots, resulting from the earlier high pricing
- Walnuts – The pricing for walnuts into 2015 does not look optimistic at present
Pumpkin – This market may be heading into increasingly “choppy waters”, for 2015 supply
