Onion and watermelon specialist Progreso Produce has expanded its avocado program to include Peruvian fruit.
Boerne, Texas-based Progreso, which sources avocados from Mexico year-round, will ship Peruvian avocados for about 12 weeks this summer, according to a company news release.
Peruvian product was expected to begin arriving the week of June 25. Fruit will be available in 48-count and larger sizes, packed in 25-pound cartons and marketed under the Southern Exposure brand.
Progreso sources onions and watermelons from all major U.S. and Mexican growing regions.
