Tropical Harvest Update

12.27.2021 – tropical resolutions

Starfruit or carambola - FLA

The 2021/2022 Florida Winter Carambola crop has started and despite an unusual wind storm last week, we will have promotable volume all January. Starfruit is a perfect healthy snack for winter promotions.

Caribbean Red papayas - GT

Slightly reduced volumes during the year end transition. Please pre-book.

SlimCado tropical Avocado - US/DO

We still expect tight supply as we close out the calendar year. Imports from the island will drop-off during the holiday weeks and the Florida crop is finishing up.

Persian Limes - GT

40lb and 10lb cartons loading in New Jersey or here in Florida can offer convenience and savings! Call for daily availability..

Dragonfruit - Florida / Ecuador

Ecuadorean fruit will be in great supply all January. Consider back-to-school shoppers and healthy diet resolutions.

Passionfruit - FLA

January will see a more moderate but consistent supply although warm temperatures are really helping production now.

Solo papayas - BR

Unusually higher rainfall and cooler than normal temperatures continue to govern supply . Expect larger sizes – 8ct and some 7ct – to be the norm moving forward.

Ginger - BR

Promotable volume of fresh ginger is available for January. Look for the Lunar New Year to promote.

Groovy Coconuts - DO

Typical logistic-related seasonal shortage should be expected in early January, but supplies are adequate. Every Dominican Groovy Coconut© is hand selected here in Florida.
