Frozen Fruit & Vegetable News
This is going to be a challenging year with the supply of frozen fruits. You can expect price increases and shortages. The weather always plays a role in what happens to our Fruits and Vegetables and this year is no exception. Because of the warm spring and late frost many farmers have lost their crops for this year.
We expect the following items to be short or not available until later in the season. Of course, weather can change the harvest time forward or backwards depending upon how warm or cool the summer develops. Listed below are approximate times and supply quantities.
Products: Current Status: Expected New Pack Arrival:
Red Pie Cherries limited available first of July
Dark Sweet Cherries none available end July/first of Aug.
Blackberries very limited first/mid/July
Black Raspberries available first/mid of July
