Tons of them in Florida and Texas alone, although I can't really speak on California or Arizona.

Houston has alot of wealthy Mexican nationals looking to escape Mexico due to the threats of kidnapping and crime in general.

I would think that some of this would be based to a degree on how long a family lived in the US. Also South Florida as mentioned is a special case due to history. Consider as well the term Hispanic is not a racial category as well.

I am thinking in terms of where I live (Atlanta). The Hispanic community there is a recent arrivial and that local born Hispanics are still children.

Another aspect is illegal immigration, also the last couple of years a large number of illegals have returned home. (largely voluntary due to economic reasons and enforcment of labor laws)

Lastly over time you could have many Hispanics marry outside the group and have by definition Hispanic children. Most likely would be white Catholics (decendants of the white-ethnics) who would be closer in views due to common faith and similar family values.

Mexicans prefer Houston, according to Ms. Saldaña, because luxury homes there cost less than those in California, Miami or even Mexico City. And from Houston, there are some 40 daily flights to Mexican cities, with at least 20 to Mexico City, a two-hour trip.

Default Apples grown by Mexican Americans, are they interesting in today's market?

Are there any economists or retail food marketing specialists in this conversation?

If a group of Mexican-American apple growers acheived their dream to be entrepreneurs rather than farm labor wanted to market an "ethnic" brand of apples, where are the affluent communities who would want to buy these apples. The price would be higher price due to increased and specialized handling.

What would make these apples worth more money to the buyers?

Are there "best" Latino/Mexican markets, for example, income levels, fruit preferences, upscale enclaves, etc.

I keep reading that the Mexican customers tend to be lower-income and very price sensitive. How do we find the affluent subsets that would be willing to pay a premium for their product?

Has a Mexican upper class evolved in the Southwest U.S. or Western US willing to pay extra for these apples, or is the idea for a "Mexican American Grown" value-added apple ahead of its time.

Do you think food store chains would be receptive to selling the ethnic brand apple? Which ones?

Is there anyone in the food business who would know minimum requirements for such a value-added apple?

Thank you to this very interesting set of writers!

there are a lot of wealthy Hispanics, in Miami for example, almost every rich person in south america has properties in Miami as part of its belongs and normally his family lives there. The same in other cities of south florida. Normally wealthiest hispanics like to mix with white american people and that is the reason why you dont see many whealthy only hispanics neighborhoods

He's not a flashy guy nor does he wear the latest fashions. Regular looking guy. BUT his kids all go to great schools and he's exposed his children to lots of world travel.

Maybe what you're looking for is right in your face, but instead of seeing it, you're looking for a Benz.

Totally agree, Whealth is not the car you drive, specially here in the US where a low income person can lease a Car and have two jobs just to make the monthly payments living check to check. Go to a gheto poor neighborhood and you will see a lot of fancy cars and people living from the goverment.
