(May 20) EAST FREETOWN, Mass. —This summer marks the entry of Jonathan’s Organic into organic deals for New Zealand apples and kiwifruit, said John Musser, director of imports.
The first shipment of apples should arrive mid-June in Wilmington, Del., he said. The company’s arrivals, which will include a full line of varieties, should continue into August.
Jonathan’s also expects to have its first shipments of organic New Zealand kiwifruit, with green and gold arrivals, by mid-June, Musser said. The company isn’t the direct importer but hopes to be eventually, he said.
