Field Update from Caborca, Sonora

The Fall Honeydew melon crop out of Caborca, Sonora is just around the corner.

The pictures below were taken within the last 10 days, and illustrate the health of the fields and the advancement of the fruit on the vine. Currently there is up to size 5ct fruit on the vine, and sugar is increasing daily. 

During the summer, the coastal agricultural regions of Sonora received more rain than usual, affecting to different degrees the various crops being grown for Fall harvest. As you can see below, the honeydew fields are in excellent condition, and we look forward to shipping top-quality fruit throughout the next three months. 

Please give us a call within the next week to get the latest update on shipping availability. At this moment we are shooting for the last week of September- weather permitting.
