Wohlford says each bin is designed to hold totes of apples or pears and allow retailers to move displays around the store.
RPE: Melissa Sylte, marketing manager for Russet Potato Exchange Inc., Bancroft, Wis., said the company has three new varieties in the Old Oak Farms brand. Honeysuckle Gold potatoes offer gold skin with red blushes, and grow with less water and fertilizer than traditional varieties; Cherry Creek Red has bright red skin and white flesh and has anti-greening properties that extend shelf life; and Willow Creek Gold is a slightly elongated but smaller gold potato, though it is larger than a fingerling.
