Another fall Ag update! In the fall, the trucks loaded with red Bell peppers* are intense splashes of color heading south to the processing units just north of Los Angeles. I am especially fond of the brightly yellow Dusi Bros. trucks, carrying the crimson loads, when contrasted against an azure autumn sky!
*For those of you that don’t know, the Central Coast is a composition of fascinating pockets of microclimates. Red bell peppers are grown in Gilroy and King City because those areas are warm and have enough heat units to produce peppers.
