Oppy and Oceanside Pole Usher in Brussels Sprouts, Tomatoes for 2020 Season
- by Anne Allen
SEATTLE, WA - As March nears, my sights are set firmly on the warm weather that spring brings. Two produce categories come to mind when the sun shines: tomatoes and Brussels Sprouts. Oceanside Pole is reading my mind—and the minds of other spring-obsessed consumers—as it recently announced an outstanding vine-ripe tomato season to go along with its high-quality Brussels sprouts.
“Retailers continue to look forward to Oceanside Pole’s tomato season and this year is no exception,” said James Galindo, Senior Sales Representative for Oppy, the exclusive marketer of the Oceanside Pole brand. “The reputation of these tomatoes precedes itself, making them highly sought after and rightfully so—their taste, texture, and shelf life are truly exceptional.”
According to a press release, Oceanside Pole Brussels sprouts complement the legendary grower’s much-anticipated round and Roma pole-grown tomato crop, tuning up the soil while extending the opportunities for the workers on the farm.
Oceanside Pole attributes the cool night temperatures and foggy, salt air as contributors to great-tasting Brussels sprouts in California. The multi-generational family farm offers sprouts through the first week of June and will ship its popular vine-ripened tomatoes by the end of June through to the first week of November.
