Oranges make a comeback on Produce Market Guide
In a reversal from the previous week, oranges are once more No. 1 on Produce Market Guide, booting lettuce to the No. 2 spot the week of Dec. 2. Avocados jumped from No. 14 up to No. 3, and cucumbers moved up a few spots to No. 4, while citrus giant pummelos remained at No. 5.
Mandarins and tangerines saw resurging interest, reappearing in the No. 6 spot, and limes also came back at No. 9. Beets rounded out the top 10, gaining a spot from the previous week.
Bananas rejoined the list at No. 13, and pomegranates slipped a place to No. 14. Pears claimed quite a bit of interest, with conventional fruit appearing in the No. 15 spot and organic at No. 19. Perhaps as a sign of interest in New Years greens and healthy eating, kale rounded out the top 20.
