May 19th Fruit Update

Greetings Everyone,
I hope this note finds you well. 
First of all, I’d like to congratulate those of you that are graduating high school/college and those that have family that are graduating high school/college.

Some of the workers you see out there, Nick, Jason, and Bryce are graduating high school as well.  Randy, the grove manager, is one credit short of getting his GED and that should happen within the next few years.

Now for the bad news, the mango outlook is worse than I thought.  Another mango vendor is not even going to open to the public.
Some trees appear to have a normal set, but overall it’s just not good.  You should expect to pay $5.00 per pound across the state for fresh Florida mangoes.

Lychee update
The mauritius lychees are turning color, but currently are small due to the lack of rain.  We typically start selling them around the first or second week of June.
Our opening date all depends on Mother Nature.  Sweethearts will be in short supply, expect $15 per pound.

Wax Jambu
I am finally starting to see flowers on the trees.

They are starting grow and are currently the size of a green pea. We expect them in the August tie frame.

That’s it for now.

Thank you,
