Weather Related Quality Issues

September 24, 2019
 We are seeing some challenges in quality due to very warm and rainy weather in our growing regions.  Humid weather is causing seeder/high core in iceberg, as well as premature pinking in color. In romaine we are experiencing fringe burn and high core; growers are doing their best to trim this in order to mitigate some of this issue. In addition to iceberg and romaine, tender leaf product is showing small signs of mildew. Lastly, we may see some discoloration with cauliflower. On a lighter note, kale seems to be holding up the best and quality looks good.  
 
Please be prepared to see some of these weather related quality issues.
