California sweet corn harvest nears
California sweet corn harvest is right around the corner.
Van Groningen & Sons, Manteca, Calif., will again have plentiful supplies of white, bi-color and yellow varieties, according to a news release. Harvest in California’s Imperial Valley begins April 20 in the El Centro area for the grower.
Van Groningen & Son saleswoman Danielle Ratto said cooperative weather will bring excellent quality from the fields.
“With the number of people being forced to stay home and cook, we are anticipating sales to be fairly strong on the front end,” Ratto said in the release. “The warmer weather is getting people excited to fire up their grills and get out of the house.”
