(Dec. 29) MOSS LANDING, Calif. — Capurro Marketing LLC will offer greenhouse-grown cucumbers and bell peppers year-round from its operations in Guadalajara, Mexico.
About 95,000 cartons of cucumbers and 200,000 cartons of red and gold peppers will be shipped from the company‘s 25-acre facility in the city, said Mike Manfre, a partner in the company.
The crops previously were only available from May until November, but Capurro will fill the supply gap with its new Guadalajara facility, which was leased this summer.
The cucumbers and bell peppers will be shipped to the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
Capurro’s greenhouse program is a partnership among Capurro and two other growers. Its products are shipped under the Topless label.
