MARKET REPORT – JULY 21ST, 2017

FIRST – A Big Thank You!

We have wrapped up our Peru Relief efforts after what stretched to several months of fund-raising.  We have doubled (matched) the nearly $11,000 raised and sent our banana growers the last of the money.   Over 600 families are members of BOS (Asociación Bananeros Orgánicos Solidarios.)  $22,000 is not a huge amount of money spread over 600 growers, but dollars go a lot farther in that small depressed economy – and everything helps these small families repair water systems and replace flooded plants.  Thanks again for helping out, and engaging your customers as well.   We will get you some information and pictures showing how the money is being spent, and we will see that first hand when we visit them in a few months as well.

APRICOTS AND APRICOT LIKE THINGS – PLUMS, APRIUMS, PLUOTS.

These lovely fruits are definitely an eastern European, Turkish, and Armenian touchstone when it comes to fruit, although their actual origin is in doubt – apparently some dudes took apricot trees from Manchuria along the silk trail, skirting the Black Sea, and planted them in Istanbul.  Turkey supplies over 50% of the dried apricots in the world.
