Where's the fruit?

By  | 

Fruita, Colo. (KKCO) --- With summer in full swing, Mesa County farmer's markets are up and running.

But something is missing.

With this year's cold winter, some fruits (like cherries and apricots) are basically non-existent and residents are starting to getting anxious about their local produce.

But local farmers are stressing patience. "The fruit and produce will be here when it's time," says Farmer Bob of Alida's Fruits. "We have to grow it before you can eat it."

Farmer Bob does have good news though, some local favorites should be emerging soon.

"Your vegetables, tomatoes and the likes of that usually start the last week of July," he says. "The main peaches that everybody is looking for, the big, freestone, canning peaches, start about the tenth of August."
