In Peru, workers harvest sweet onions and place them in mesh bags for curing. Somewhat cool, cloudy weather led to a late start this season, says Bob DeBruyn, president of DeBruyn Produce Co., Zeeland, Mich. In addition, DeBruyn says some Peruvian sweet onion shipments arrived a bit later than usual because growers were reluctant to get back into the deal too soon, recalling the âdisastrousâ pricing they saw last year.
