Despite sluggish movement, the initial quality of the Peruvian crop has been excellent, said Kevin Hendrix, vice president of Hendrix Produce Inc., Metter, Ga.

Based on early shipments, he said jumbos dominate, with a few mediums for consumer packs.

Todd Van Solkema, chief executive officer of Van Solkema Produce, Byron Center, Mich., agreed, saying about 65%-70% of his early shipments are jumbos.

“And that’s going up every day,” he said.
