- Hazelnuts– The firmer trend on pricing from Turkey continued throughout October and looks likely to continue at least in the short term up to end 2015.
- Pecans – Another storm brewing in the Gulf of Mexico and very heavy rains recently may bring some delays to the forthcoming harvests and some chaos to shipments short term as the weather causes disruption at the ports.
- PineNuts – This market has stayed quiet since our last report, despite the un-contradicted concerns that the new crop will be smaller than this year.
- Almonds – Heavy winter showers and snow are really imperative this year if there is any chance for the 2016 crop development to be improved.
