Royal Flavor LLC, San Diego, is testing an organic program out of Baja California this season, said sales manager Steve Yasuda. The program will involve tomatoes, roma tomatoes and mini peppers.
Limited quantities will be available into November, when the program will transition to the Culiacan area in mainland Mexico, Yasuda said. The Baja California program will enable the company to offer organic tomatoes year-round. It likely will be expanded next season if it proves successful, Yasuda said.
