US: 2010 avocado crop looks good

Near perfect weather at bloom time have avocado growers saying the California 2010 crop could be a huge one. Hot weather during the 2008 bloom reduced this year's production. Although the potential is there for a great harvest, growers know weather between now and harvest could reduce that potential. Farmers hope for ample rain, but not high winds and no frost in the growing regions. Avocado harvest usually peaks in late spring. The top avocado producing counties are San Diego, Ventura and Riverside.
