WENATCHEE, Wash. –With good blooms, promotable volumes, and jumbo sizes, this year’s 100% certified organic apricot crop has the potential to be big. Stemilt’s Washington apricots are back mid-June through July with highest volume from July 4th onwards.
“This year’s crop of Artisan Organics™ apricots are bringing good volume based on the blooms we’ve seen which will host a great organic deal at Stemilt,” the company reports. “While California is the main apricot growing region, Washington is expecting a great crop this year.”
The Douglas family grows all Stemilt’s apricots, peaches, and nectarines 100% organically in Pasco, WA in the Columbia Basin where a rain shadow makes for the optimal growing location for stone fruit. The family is committed to using only the best organic practices to pick stone fruit at just the right stage of ripeness for the best flavor, quality, and size.
Stemilt is a family-owned grower, packer, and shipper of tree fruit. Owned and operated by the Mathison family. The company is a leader in sweet cherries and organic tree fruits, and a key supplier of apples and pears.
