Cherries coming out of South America are finished for the year. We won’t see any fresh cherries until the crops in California begin in early May.

Areas to Watch
Colored Peppers, Zucchini & Yellow Squash

Short winter days with not a great deal of sunlight has limited the supply of Canadian hot house peppers this time of year. Although you may not find the quality is decent, the prices will be high. As for zucchini and yellow squash — cold nights in the growing regions have slowed the growth of both vegetables. This should be a short term issue, but expect gaps in the quality of the products as well as higher prices.
