Produce News Update
Welcome back from your much deserved break!! I hope you all had and great holiday and I
wish you a blessed 2015. When it comes to fruits and vegetables you have many choices
right now. Florida citrus is a great pick. Remember those oranges, both whole and pre
sliced. Navel oranges, tangerines and tangelos. Many of varieties are available at about
the same cost....consider and use a different color and shake things up a bit!!
Cantaloupes are good and great to mix with honeydew. Kiwi is always a favorite,
especially with cold and flu season. Watch grapes while they make the transition. Plums
and nectarines are not a pick for sure. Most all veggies are good at this time but
weather can change them quickly. I'm amazed at how good Florida strawberries are now but
that could change with cold snaps in weather so refer to your price list.
Please let me know if you have any questions as we are happy to help. Need help in
planning your menu?? Just give us a call!!
We appreciate all that you do and that you allow us to be your produce vendor.
Thanks so much and have a great day!!
