Rain or hurricanes can slow up plantings and delay harvest, but so far this season, there is no sign of either.
As last season’s hard freeze showed, it’s what comes later in the season that matters.
Chris Eddy, general manager for Edinburg, Texas-based Frontera Produce Ltd., said the company started harvesting Texas-grown cilantro in early November and expects to start Texas-grown cabbage around Thanksgiving.
“We’re also on the tail end of planting our onion crop,” Eddy said in mid-November.
“All of that is in the ground and peeking through.”
