FROM THE FIELDS: Central Coast Strawberries

June 03, 2019

Santa Maria and Salinas/Watsonville, California strawberry growing regions have been cleaning up rain-damaged fruit all week. Minor water damage remains present in most lots, but will no longer be a concern next week.

Weather forecasts call for mostly warm, sunny conditions next week, which will promote growth and improve berry color. Supplies remain available in Santa Maria, but the bulk of Markon orders will be coming out of the Salinas/Watsonville region now that supplies and quality are improving.
