Chris Ciruli, a partner in Ciruli Bros. LLC, Nogales, said Mexico shipped high-quality fruit to the U.S.
“I think you will see that this will be the highest shipping season on record,” Ciruli said in mid-August. “Prices have been very reasonable too. It’s helped keep the market moving.”
Central American Produce Inc., Pompano Beach, Fla., received its first Brazil shipments in mid-August, said Michael Warren, president.
Warren said Brazil’s tommy atkins variety produces a strong red color and makes for a nice start to the season.
He characterized eating quality as high.
