UPDATE SUMMARY: WEEK OF OCTOBER 26, 2020

October 29, 2020

Strawberries

  • Markon First Crop Strawberries are available in both plastic and recyclable cardboard clamshells
  • Strawberries are maturing/coloring before they reach full size due to recent high heat, resulting in smaller fruit
  • Potential quality challenges include softness, decay, and sunburn
  • Cold-chain management remains a vital component in maximizing shelf-life

Transition from Salinas Valley

  • Row crop harvesting will begin to wind down in the Salinas Valley as November begins, with supplies transitioning south throughout the month
  • Production in the Arizona/California desert region will ramp up starting the first week of November and become the primary growing region by late November
  • Celery harvesting will begin in the Oxnard, California region in early November; Coachella, Santa Maria, and Yuma will supplement production through the fall and into the spring
