President Donald Trump’s threats to slap tariffs on Mexican goods may already be having an impact on avocado prices.

One gauge of the Hass variety from Michoacan, the heartland of Mexican avocado production, gained 3.7% on Monday to the highest since August 2017. Unchanged last week, the benchmark has surged 65% this year. Other prices tracked by AvoPrice were little changed Monday.
