They will also be adding a few new varieties of conventional mixed melons including orange flesh honeydew, galia, hami and canary melons.
“2016 will be our inaugural year starting with any organic items and we are very excited to introduce these two items to our customers” said Ryan Van Groningen, sales manager for the grower-shipper. “Though organics might not take a lot of the market share in the melon category, select consumers are asking for these organic melons at the retail level and we are happy to support our retail partners with these products”.
