Potato and Onion Update

Hearty and wholesome!

*Transportation out of all areas has been difficult, and more expensive than normal*

Western Washington is in full production on their red and yellow potatoes, and their quality is great! Western Washington will finish packing white potatoes in the near future. Eastern Washington and Idaho are also packing red and yellow potatoes. White potato production will start out of Bakersfield, California next week.

Fun Fact: Many people think Potatoes are vegetables but, in fact, potatoes are legumes! A legume is plant that is able to fix nitrogen from the air and put it into the soil, and potatoes do just that.

Russet potatoes out of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho have been nice. Russet supplies are tight, and the market is moving up.

Fun Fact: Idaho, the present-day largest producer of potatoes, actually did not begin growing potatoes until 1836!

White, yellow, and red onion quality and supply have been good from Washington, Idaho, and Nevada! These markets have started to show signs of strength, particularly the white onion market.

Fun Fact: The pungent juice of onions has been used as a moth repellent and can be rubbed on the skin to prevent insect bites.

 

Tropicals

Ataulfo and Tommy Atkin mangoes are available from Ecuador! We will see the volume of Tommy Atkin mangoes increase over the next few weeks.
Fun Fact: Mango seeds traveled with humans from Asia to the Middle East, East Africa and South America beginning around 300 or 400 A.D.

Limes are limited at the moment, with pricing on the rise. This is due to the transition in growing areas. Rain and cooler weather has slowed down production in Mexico.

Fun Fact: India is the greatest producer of limes in the world.

Melons

Seedless watermelon is very short. Honeydew from Mexico are arriving now. The cantaloupe market is firm.

Habanero peppers are now available out of the desert areas in Coachella, California. Their quality is excellent and their sizes are large. New crop jicama is now available out of Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico. This jicama has a very thin skin and minimal shelf life, which means it does not ship very well. At this time of the year, most shippers are using old-crop storage jicama. The price, and demand, for jicama is much higher, and it’s a bit more difficult to source. Jalapeno, serrano, tomatillo, and pasilla
