For the week of May 13th

Close contact with our growers about current weather and growing conditions allows us to give weekly updates to keep you informed. We offer current quality and market updates for each category of produce all in one place. Here are some products to buy with caution this week.

Blueberries:
Supplies have become very tight as the crop in Florida has come to a quick end, and Georgia is just getting started with very light supplies. North Carolina supplies are expected to get started around the 25th of May. Prices are up.

Oranges:
Late season navels are winding down for the season. Small sized fruit supplies remain limited. California Valencia harvest has started and we are shipping 113 and 138ct valencia’s and navels. We will notice a quality difference on the valencia’s as they will be lighter in color and not as sweet in flavor.

Avocados:
Avocado markets are up as a result of some hail storms and rains last week in Mexico. It’s not yet known the damage that was done to the fruit if any. Harvesting was down last week as a result of this. The market will be up.

Peppers:
Supplies have become extremely tight as product from Mexico winds down, and product from Florida is also winding down for the season. Georgia is then expected to start in about 2 weeks. California does have light supplies starting and should go through May. Prices are way up!
