Words heard this week from Cawston is that the apples are all going to be much larger this year. This means way more 80/88ct sizing and larger available compared to the 100/113ct sizing. In contrast the Asian pears are coming along but they are quite small this year. Maybe all the thinning happened on the apple trees instead of the pear trees? Spartans will get picked in a week or so along with Golds. Fujis not long after that. We have great pricing on the last of the NZ Fujis in stock. Pallets deals are available too if you ask any of our lovely sales folks. Colder nights and shorter days are slowing down the BC ground crops. We may have to load USA grown zucchini soon! Green bells are more scarce now as they are turning to brilliant yellow, orange and red much faster with the waning daylight. Origino is still strong on LE cukes. From points further south we are anticipating a mid October start date for our Mexican Fair Trade program with Divine Flavor. Heger Farm should start around the same time as well.
