Yuma with Ice

Wed, Jan 10th, 2024

Dear Ole Tyme Customers:

Weather Alert:

We have another ice delay this morning in Yuma. Some shippers today will not start harvesting until 11am.

Expectations:

  • Less product hitting the coolers with later harvest times and shorter daylight hours
  • Some harvest crews not starting until 11am today.
  • Quality issues in the next few weeks will be prevalent with the current frost damage and ice delays this week.
  • For the next few weeks, expect blister, epidermal peel, and freeze burn on leaf and lettuce.
  • Shelf life and texture will be affected after these freezing temperatures, especially on tender leaf items.
  • Expect lighter weights as harvesters will peal back the outer leaves to clean up quality in the fields.
