As a year-round grower and shipper of RealSweet brand onions, Shuman Produce, based in Reidsville, GA, also will showcase its Peruvian sweet onions available to retailers during the fall and winter months. Peru offers the ideal combination of weather and sandy soils that allow for a premium sweet onion. RealSweet Peruvian sweet onions maintain the taste, sweetness and color found in RealSweet Vidalia onions. This year, Shuman Produce celebrates 20 years of growing premium sweet onions in Peru.

Shuman Produce will also be highlighting its RealSweet brand sweet potato crop. The Georgia crop was harvested in late September and will be available to retailers in time for Thanksgiving. Shuman Produce will offer the sweet potatoes in both 40-pound bulk and consumer pack options.

Kevin Jenkins and Erik Holdo, also known as the personalities Chef & The Fat Man, will once again host live cooking demos featuring RealSweet Peruvian sweet onions and sweet potatoes at Shuman’s booth. This dynamic duo will entertain and provide delicious meal samples that highlight Shuman Produce’s products.

PMA Fresh Summit attendees can also enter to win a Big Green Egg by visiting Shuman Produce’s booth. Big Green Egg is a high-quality ceramic kamado-style charcoal grill that can be used as a smoker, oven or grill, allowing for a variety of ways to enjoy RealSweet Peruvian sweet onions. It’s the perfect complement to tailgates and barbecues.
