LOS ANGELES, CA – As the Central Mexico and Peruvian winter seasons slow down, Progressive Produce BB #:113613 will begin opening its fields in Northern Baja, where the region’s moderate coastal climate produces some of the nicest quality asparagus we see all year.

“Every year, we look forward to our Northern Baja season. As we get through July, where weather is unpredictable down in Central Mexico, it is great to have this reliable region’s crop coming into harvest,” explained Sean Barganski, Sales Manager.

Progressive has been farming in Northern Baja for a decade now and continues to add additional acreage each year to maintain their high-quality supply in the region.

“We will be able to offer our customers promotable volume in a high-quality pack throughout August,” said Barganski. “Our team in Mexico is reporting fantastic quality from their first pack outs, and we should expect that to continue for the entirety of this late summer season.”

Progressive is especially excited about its purple asparagus offerings from these fields in Northern Baja. For the rest of the year, Progressive can offer a full line up including conventional, organic, white, and purple asparagus.

“Progressive is a one stop shop for its customers to get their full offerings of asparagus,” added Barganski. “Having this asparagus just across the border from our state-of-the-art cold storage warehouse in Southern California allows for a quick turnaround from harvest to distribution to our retail and food service customers.”

Product will be packed in 11-pound boxes, but we also have the capability to pack in 28-pound boxes.? A dynamic bag program is also available in many sizes and styles.
