Onion volume could be slightly lower at the start of harvesting, which typically begins around Labor Day, he said.

Some warm days and timely rains, however, are helping the onions grow, he said.



In late July and early August, James J. Piedimonte & Sons Inc. and Anthony J. Piedimonte/Cabbco, Holley, N.Y., plan to begin harvesting Tasti-Lee-branded round red tomatoes.

Tasti-Lee is a hybrid round beefsteak-style tomato licensed through Bejo Seeds Inc. in Oceano, Calif.
