In addition, if returns on field-grown fruit are low, they serve as a drag on shade house or greenhouse product, said Dick Spezzano, owner of Monrovia, Calif.-based Spezzano Consulting Service, which specializes in retail issues.

Retailers want top-quality fruit, too, and shade houses provide it, Spezzano said.
