Tropical Harvest Update

10.04.21 – gt persian seedless limes are back

SlimCado tropical avocados - FLA / DO

Fruit production remains in the larger sized range as Florida is producing some of its best tasting varieties of the year now. Dominican production increases slightly the second week of October and builds weekly after that.

Caribbean Red papayas - GT

As rainy conditions continue this week, conditions in the field are still “rainy season”. However, drier weather is expected next weekend and we are looking forward to very good availability through October.

Starfruit or carambola - FLA

Expect limited supplies in the large sizes and Fall fruit to have a bit more color as we begin the transition between summer and winter crops. The winter season begins earnestly in December. GREAT FOR LUNCHBOXES

Passionfruit - FLA

The late-summer peak has passed and availability will be extremely limited so pre-booking is strongly encouraged. GREAT FOR LUNCHBOXES

Dragonfruit - Florida / Ecuador

Florida will have one final, large harvest over the next two weeks before ceding to cooler weather and fewer daylight hours. Expect sizes to be medium. Ecuador really hasn’t started so supplies will remain precious.

Persian Limes - CO / GT / MX

Mexico has a “bi-polar” market currently with unequal expectations in the different growing regions. Guatemala has entered to stabilize supply and offer consistency.

Solo papayas - BR

We are in peak season in Brasil so the only thing holding back availability is airspace. All sizes are running strong, but sporadic logistics demands pre-booking.

Ginger - BR

The container season from Brasil typically ends in December and as arrivals dropped drastically in September, the market remains tight. We will have good supplies through October.

Groovy Coconuts - DO

Consistent and regular volume available as we head into the winter. Every Groovy Coconut© is hand selected here in Florida.
