FROM THE FIELDS: Mushroom Harvesting
November 20, 2017
Please click here to view a Markon Live from the Fields video about mushroom harvesting in Salinas, California.
The video shows the Markon Food Safety team’s recent visit to the Monterey Mushroom facility in Royal Oaks, California
When the mushrooms are ready, crews harvest for five days, two times per day
It takes 10 days for supplies to mature from the pin to the harvesting stage
Harvesting, sizing, and packing is all done manually
Crews sort according to four different sizes (small, medium, large, and number 2 grade)
After harvesting and sizing, supplies are cleaned, processed, and packed into Markon First Crop cartons in a separate room
Please contact your Markon customer service representative for further information.
