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.
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.
