UPDATE: Excessive Heat in California's Salinas Valley
August 28, 2017
Excessive heat is expected in the Salinas Valley through the entire week, creating quality concerns.
Markon First Crop Premium Green Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine are sporadic; Markon Best Available will be substituted as needed
Heat-related defects such as bottom rot, decay, dense texture, increased insect pressure, internal burn, premature pinking, seeder, and shortened shelf-life may develop in commodity and value-added items
Markon recommends ordering for quick turns and maintaining the cold chain to maximize quality and shelf-life
Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
