Not much change on the apple front – still lots of B.C. and Washington available, and the first Fair Trade Galas should be in on Tuesday from Argentina.
Next shot of avocado due in on Friday – we have reasonably good supply, and lots of bagged avos as well, which are on special.
More FT grapefruit en route, and FT mangos arriving early in the week as we get geared up for Fair Trade fortnight. Hoping to have 14 different FT items in stock by May 1!
The first cantaloupe of the season have popped up at Francisco Tepia’s ranch in Hermosillo – expect smaller fruit and higher pricing until the main pull starts on the coast from Guaymas south – these areas are cooler being on the ocean.
Citrus supply remains strong, although some specialty fruit will wane over the next couple of weeks – loads of Navels still available from southern areas of the Central Valley – we expect good supply for 3 – 4 weeks.
Pear supply continues to increase – don’t miss out on the beautiful Abate Fetels – that is a very short season from the south. Yes we still have good supply of B.C. Concorde and D’Anjous – firm and green!
California blues are off to a mediocre start, with continuing crappy weather, but prices will come off despite this.
Lots of beautiful bunch carrots from John Givens back in stock – we jump at every chance we can get these – the sell through is excellent.
Have you ever heard of “over winter” cauliflower? Planted in the Pacific NW, as long as we don’t have a harsh winter, these European varieties are planted out in September, and produce beautiful white crowns – the variety is Snowburst, and we have Oregon cauli arriving tomorrow.
