The British Columbia greenhouse pepper season is underway at Randhawa Farms and Origin Organic Farms, said Aaron Quon, executive category director of greenhouse for Vancouver-based The Oppenheimer Group.

Randhawa Farms’ conventional production has increased over last year with the addition of 15 new acres, which will be producing by midsummer, he said.

Randhawa Farms will start packing peppers into its recently launched brand, Perpetual Vegetable Co., in June, he said. A new website and consumer promos also are in the works. Oppy also added 2 acres of organic pepper production that will be packed in the OriginO brand.
