2017-18 navel season

The 2017-18 season is rapidly approaching and should prove to be a banner year.  Although the crop is off from last year by 8% to 10%, fruit size and quality are as good as we have seen in a while.  

We were blessed with abundant rain fall this past winter and it has made our job of farming this crop a lot easier.  The results are healthy trees and good sized fruit to start the season.  Early testing show that the start of the navel season could be a week behind last season which would put the start around the 18th of October.  The 2017 valencias will finish about that time so hopefully there will be no gap in supply.  We will know more about the eating quality when we get closer to harvest in October, stay tuned...
