The moderate weather lately has been a nice change and has provided some needed relief for the communities to recover from the heavy flooding of months past. We are excited to report that the severe weather did not affect the future harvest as suspected. Our crop nutrition remains strong and pests are at a minimum. Our crownless quality continues to out last the competition with much less purge even though we have shifted to a higher internal color. Our finishing technique in crownless has also increased the shelf life of our crown pineapple packs.
The harvest for the final quarter of 2021 will have more first harvest plantings, which will provide enough large sized pineapple for promotional volume through the end of the year for retail chains.
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.
