Gold Pineapple

COSTA RICA

July and August are typically the time of the year in Costa Rica where we see production numbers at their lowest as we hit the height of the Summer in Costa Rica.  Because of the intense periods of sun coupled with the frequent showers that can occur in the afternoons, it’s very typical to see the harvest be higher shell-colored fruit which we call “Summer Gold”.  The fruit quality is still the same amazing Costa Rican Gold that we harvest throughout the year, but just a much more golden shelled exterior.  Although our production numbers aren’t at the same levels as our peak production in the Spring and Fall, we will still have ample volume to meet your supply needs.

Stella Farms offers the traditional crown-on fruit for our retail and foodservice customers as well as our specialty pack crownless fruit specifically harvested to meet the distinct needs of our fresh cut fruit processing partners.  We ship our pineapple into five strategic ports throughout the U.S. so that we are positioned to provide the optimal logistical efficiencies to our customers.

MEXICO

July and August are traditionally light in supply from our two farms in the state of Veracruz but we will still have consistent weekly volume to meet the needs of our customers that are accustomed to the beautiful Gold Pineapple that we import into our warehouse in McAllen, Texas.  We offer traditional crown-on Gold Pineapple as well as organic Gold Pineapple.

Watermelon

North Florida production is nearing completion, and Georgia is off to a slow start as rain and cool weather have slowed fruit maturity.  Georgia should reach full production the week of 6/28, just in time for 4th of July deliveries. Meanwhile our Arizona farm is producing good numbers and production will peak over the next two weeks to meet the 4th of July demand for the western markets.

 

 

Tomato

Tomatoes are finally ready to go! It has been a long wait, but we are happy to once again be working with our friends at Coyopista.

Many upgrades have taken place over the last four months, here are just a few:

  • Upgraded the packing line with new optic sorter and two new lines added so production speed will improve by 35%
  • Additional bacterial testing for any type of virus harmful to the tomato plants.
  • Additional Engineers added to better manage each greenhouse on a minute by minute basis.
  • Tomato box structure was strengthened to improve palletization from 72 to 81 boxes per pallet.
  • Rain diversion was increased and harnessed to capture additional rail water to reservoir.

All these upgrades will improve efficiencies and quality of the pack and integrity of each load. We are very excited to bring you the highest quality tomato program available in the RGV.

WE CAN OFFER ANY SPECIAL PACKS REQUIRED, BAGS, RPC, DISPLAY BOX ETC.

Mango

The Mango production cycle has now moved from Oaxaca, MX to Nayarit, MX. Overall it was a great season in Oaxaca for quality, but volume was down overall. We are seeing better volumes in Nayarit as we have moved into the Kent variety. Kents are known for their superior eating quality due to higher sugar levels and lower acid. Kents will peak towards the end of June and continue through July then we will transition into Keiits, which will carry us through the end of August.
