Nick Beahm with Eagle Eye Produce told us his company is currently shipping out of the Five Points and Bakersfield/Lancaster area. “The market is pretty steady right now,” Nick said. “Jumbo yellows are at $14, and there really hasn’t been a drastic change in pricing up or down. Yellows are leading in terms of demand with reds second and whites very close behind.” Nick said there has been some heat slowing production for a couple of days, but he noted it’s nothing major. He commented, “We have really lucked out this year. We have heard about quality issues, but we aren’t seeing any problems with what we are shipping.”
