Tommy Wilkins Details Grow Farms' Texas and Mexico Veg Programs with Mangos to Come
DONNA, TX - With the heightening demand for quality year-round fresh produce programs to satisfy the ever-growing needs of the retailer and the consumer, programs in Texas and Mexico continue to be essential to the marketplace and are sure to increase in impact for years to come. Grow Farms Texas is answering the call this winter despite inclement weather (to be expected with Mother Nature’s fleet of woes) and is currently harvesting Texas red and green cabbage in addition to crops south of the border.
“Our Texas Italian Sweet Onions are up and looking very nice for late April and early May harvest,” Tommy Wilkins, Director of Sales and Business Development, shares. “Weather has limited our green bell pepper and cucumber production in Mexico but we are optimistic we will be back on track in the next few weeks.”
Color bell peppers are also gearing up and will be available later in January as retailers consistently partner with Grow Farms as a one-stop-shop for their Texas and Mexico fresh produce needs.
Currently, the bell pepper and cucumber markets are escalated due to low production numbers, Tommy adds, with the potential for the market to smooth out in the coming weeks.
“We are working to ramp up on our mango crop for harvest in mid-February through our Ciruli Brothers program to the delight of our partners and the mango-loving demographics across the U.S.,” Tommy tells me.
Now is the perfect time for retailers to bolster their fresh produce programs to help consumers make a habit out of hitting the fruit and vegetable department first, and Grow Farms Texas is here to help.
