South Carolina harvesting, which normally starts about a week after Georgia, is harvesting early as well, Lane said. That state’s production usually runs into September.

Lane plans to ship 850,000 25-pound half-bushel cartons, up from the 700,000 it shipped last season. Pearson Farm expects to ship 400,000 25-pound cartons, its normal season volume.

Overall, Georgia growers expect to ship 2.5 million cartons, similar to last season, Lane said.
