Produce News Update



Hello Everyone

I hope you are doing well and enjoying this beautiful weather out.  Produce remains
stable
and good across the board.  We have been getting some great citrus lately!  While oranges
are beautiful and great, a favorite of mine is the mineola........it is kind of a cross
between and orange and tangerine.  Everyone loves them!  Pears have been good, but the
red
ones have been super.  Kiwi is always a favorite.  110 to a case and just quarter and
serve.  They have a very long shelf life also!.  Cantaloupe and honeydew are great right
now and so easy to serve.  What about adding a strawberry and doing a fresh fruit cup? 
Apples are beautiful but I would stick to red, gold, or maybe a granny smith.  Many of
the
other kinds can have a higher price tag with them this time of year.  Don't forget
pineapple, just put on your slicer and slice with the peeling on and serve. Sliced apples
are a great treat and don't forget the grapes!  Red grapes should yield around 70 servings
per case.
Veggie cups are great this time of year.  Mini carrots, celery sticks, cucumbers, grape
tomatoes all make a great combo and easy to fix. Don't forget the broccoli and
cauliflower
also.

If you have any questions, or need any help with menu items of descriptions of items just
let us know.  We are here for you!  Thanks so much and have a great week!  Don
