Lemon sales increased 41% to $44.2 million in fiscal year 2012, compared to $31.2 million in fiscal year 2011 as a result of increased volume and higher average prices. Fresh lemon cartons sold increased 33% to 2.4 million in fiscal year 2012 from 1.8 million in fiscal year 2011.

Avocado sales increased 27% to $9.5 million in fiscal year 2012, compared to $7.5 million in fiscal year 2011 as a result of higher production, partially offset by lower prices. The California avocado crop typically experiences alternative years of high and low productivity due to plant physiology.
