Thanks to its long bean growing experience, Pero Family Farms, Delray Beach, didn’t short its customers after freezes that destroyed much of the state’s green beans in 2010 and winter 2011, said Nick Bergstrom, chief sales officer. 

“God forbid we have more winter seasons like last year,” Bergstrom said.  

Georgia volume normally finishes around Thanksgiving.

Belle Glade’s deal typically ends around Memorial Day and Homestead production usually runs through early May, while Immokalee area harvesting runs through mid- to late May.
