Florida Produce Shipments Strong

Florida tomato shipments have been heavy, but loadings are expected to
gradually decline some this week and continue this trend through April.  Florida blueberry volume from central and northern areas of the state continues to increase.  South Florida potatoes loadings continue to increase, while the biggest volume is building with various vegetables from the southern and central parts of the state.  Favorable weather has most items ahead of schedule this year.  Loading opportunities in Florida overall should be excellent this spring through May, or at least until hot summer weather starts taking its toll of the vegetables.

Florida vegetables – grossing about  $3300 to New York City.
