Earl’s Organic Buyer’s Notes August 30, 2020

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We are seeing great color and flavor in the new crop Honeycrisp apples right from the beginning of the season. We expect to have the first promotable opportunities next week once more volume becomes available and prices decrease.  Local California Fuji are starting this week. Color will improve as season progresses. Green & Hemly Gala and Granny Smith are in promotable quantities now. This is the last week to enjoy new Zealand Fuji. The high color fruit has a fully developed sweet flavor and the price is also better. We expect a smooth transition to domestic early Fuji. Cripps Pink from Chile and Argentina are approaching the end of the season. These apples convert starch into sugar at a very slow rate so they reach the peak of flavor very late in the season. Biodynamic apples from Mt Hood Organics are expect by mid September. Download the Buyer’s Notes each week for the latest organic fruit and vegetable news and updates.
