Earl’s Organic Buyer’s Notes August 22, 2021

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Watermelon bins will be available for Labor Day weekend! We highly suggest you put in your pre-orders with your Earl’s Sales rep early. The Pacific Northwest Stone Fruit season is wrapping up for the most part. We may see a sporadic land here and there. California white peaches and nectarines are done. California yellow peaches and nectarines will push through October. We will see a small hit of dapple dandy and flavor pluots. Maywood Figs have slowed down as heavy smoke surrounds the orchards and limits harvesting time. Calo is experiencing low yields and small sizing on carrots due to the excessive summer heat.  Expect cellos, table, cliptops and baby peeled carrots to be tight for the next 2-3 months until the Fall/Winter carrot fields start up in November. Broccoli quality is improving, and prices are historically higher than usual. Celery continues to be an excellent deal from multiple growers.  Sun Valley continues to have good supply on Purple and Orange Cauliflower. La Granjita Organica has started their season with Serranos, Poblanos and Anaheim Peppers, Indigo Rose Cherry Tomatoes and the much awaited Watermelon Gherkins in sustainable 100% recyclable Readycycle packaging! Also known as Mexican Sour Gherkins, they are the size of haba beans, look like watermelons, but are sour on the inside.
