The crop is lighter, but that shouldn’t be a problem, said Tom Wollenman, general manager of LoBue Bros., Lindsay, Calif.
“We have a little lighter crop than we had last year, which was probably a good thing, because we had a huge crop last year,” he said.
“Our start was later, which paralleled all the other tree fruits and vineyards. The demand has been steady. Prices are fairly decent. The exports to Asia are kicking in as they always do this time of year.”
