The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is terminating Marketing Order No. 922, which regulates the handling of apricots grown in designated counties in Washington State.
Promising blooms and strong cell division action means Stemilt’s Washington apricot crop will bring big fruit this year.
Hazel Technologies Inc., a USDA-funded technology company delivering new technology solutions for fresh produce to extend shelf-life, increase sales, and fight food waste, announces a partnership with Wapato, Washington-based Valicoff Fruit Co., one of Washington State’s largest suppliers of apples, pears, peaches, nectarines, apricots and cherries.
Stemilt’s stone fruit season officially kicked off this week with its first run of Artisan Organics apricots.
Following two consecutive years of short crops due to frost, Stemilt’s Artisan Organics apricots will have more volume this year so retailers should ensure they have cots included in their summer produce plan.
When summer arrives, so does Stemilt’s premium summer fruit.
