Seasonal Rating Key
The regional harvest of hard squash has begun in earnest. Look for Acorn, Butternut, Buttercup, Spaghetti Squash and other favorites. This is the perfect time of the year to cook them up and enjoy!
California Clementines and Navel Oranges
The official forecasts are out and it looks like we'll be seeing domestically grown clementines in the first couple of weeks of October. Supplies will be light so prices should stay firm. The first of the season California navel oranges are expected to be harvested the last week of October.
Supplies of soft fruit from California and Washington, along with peaches from Colorado, are drying up. In the next few weeks we will see fewer and fewer domestic peaches, nectarines and plums.
California grapefruit supplies are all but gone — Texas is not yet producing. We are seeing the near non-existence of domestic grapefruit. There is imported product available but it is slightly more expensive.
