Plum harvest sees low yield, high quality
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- California's plum crop is a little on the low side and that means higher prices at the grocery store.
Ag experts say volume is smaller than in previous years. But California growers say the quality of the fruit is good despite the low amount.
Plum growers say this spring's hail and wind storms for the light 2012 crop. Ag experts are predicting the light season combined with the good quality will lead to higher prices for fruit.
Plum harvesting started in the Valley as early two weeks ago.
