California Clementines have just started. The majority of this product is bagged. Availability is limited at the moment, but it will increase over the next two weeks!

California navel oranges are in full swing with peak sizing being 88/72’s. Navel orange prices dropped over the last few days, but they’re leveling off now.

California Satsumas have started with good supply on all sizes. This is an easy-to-peel citrus favorite with the perfect mix of sweet and sour flavors. We will have these tasty treats through December.

Imported Citrus

Chilean lemons are on final arrivals, but smaller fruit is easily available.

Small Chilean and Peruvian W. Murcotts quality is very nice. This fruit is being used almost entirely for bagging.

Fun Fact: Lemons are believed to be a hybrid between a sour orange and a citron.

 

 

Potato and Onion Update

Hearty and wholesome!

*Transportation out of all areas has been difficult, and more expensive than normal, for this time of year. This situation is only going to become more difficult over the next few months.*

 

Western Washington is in full production on their red, white, and yellow potatoes, and their quality is great! Colored potatoes from Washington continue to be in great supply and of great quality! Eastern Washington and Idaho are also packing colored potatoes.

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!

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.

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

Melons

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

Latin Products

Flavorful and colorful!

There is one week left pasilla peppers left out of Oxnard, California. Then, we will have a three-week-long gap from Oxnard. Oxnard will be back with a mid-December harvest of new-crop, greenhouse jalapeno, serrano, and pasilla peppers. The desert areas of Coachella, California have started their fall harvest of habanero peppers. All peppers out of all areas in Mexico, from northern Mexico to southern Baja, are very limited. Market prices are high on jalapeno, serrano, pasilla, and tomatillo peppers. These prices will remain high for the next three weeks.

Fun Fact: Serranos are the hottest peppers commonly available in the U.S.
