Van Groningen & Sons Ramps Up for California Pumpkin Season
MANTECA, CA - When the leaves begin to turn and the air starts to chill, the foods of fall take center stage, and is there a food more fall-y than pumpkins? Van Groningen & Sons is ready to take the seasonal plunge with its upcoming California pumpkin crop.
“We anticipate a successful season this year, yields should be favorable and supplies ample through Halloween,” Danielle Ratto, Sales, commented, in a press release. “There has been talk of shortages in the East due to the heavy rains from the hurricane, which usually drives up demand here in the West.”
When October hits, pumpkins pop up in the produce aisle even more than faux spider webs, and the grocery store is where many consumers purchase their essential jack-o-lantern ingredient. Van Groningen & Sons offers consumers a range of new and interesting varieties like “Warty Goblins,” “Jarradales,” and “Fairytales,” all of which scream out for Instagram glamor shots.
“We are very excited about this year’s crop,” said Ratto. “The fields are looking great and the warm weather has provided the perfect growing condition for us to have an early supply available to meet retailer’s post Labor Day demand.”
