Fresh produe importer LGS Specialty Sales has reported on a "solid" 2019 Argentinian lemon season.
According to the New Rochelle-based group, since introducing Darling Lemons into the Darling Citrus product line in 2018, LGS has received positive feedback and increased demand from both retail and consumers.
The addition of Darling Lemons broadens the options for in-season citrus sold under the Darling label.
“We are proud to continue our lemon programme in Argentina this year,” said Luke Sears, president and founder of LGS. “We anticipate consumers and buyers alike to be thrilled with the quality, taste and size of our Argentinian lemons.
“The Argentina season will continue to show value to the US market as California’s Coastal Region decreases production, resulting in higher prices of lemons,” said Sears. “It is our intention to provide Darling Lemons from Argentina during the summer months to help balance the supply of this fruit to US consumers.”
Chilean Navels are also arriving the first week of July and with an "abundant supply" to last through early fall, LGS added.
