Pacific Organic Produce, San Francisco, is importing organic lemons from Sonora Mexico, with supplies through October.

The lemons, packed in the company’s Purity Organic label, could last into November, depending on October weather, according to a news release.

“We are excited to launch our Sonoran-grown, organic lemon program in partnership with the premier citrus grower and packer in the region,” Pacific Organic sales director Amy Rosenoff said in the release. “Our focus will be on quality, an efficient supply chain, and consistent supply – providing you and your customers high-grade lemons with a longer lasting shelf-life.”

Lemons are packed in 40-pound bulk cartons and 1- and 2-pound bags. The company expects the overall crop from the region to be heavy on 140-165 counts this season.

“We are looking forward to the start of this season and I speak for myself, my father, and our whole production team when I say we just couldn’t be happier to be represented by Pacific Organic, whom we share the same values and philosophy with,” grower Enrique Gracia Jr. said in the release.
