how it started
Weathermelon is an idea born from two friends in the Produce Industry who were looking for more advanced weather information than they could get from a basic weather service app.
We no longer wanted to be caught off guard when the market went up or down due to weather issues. The rain that caused the tomato market to spike or the heat wave that caused the lettuce market to drop. We asked ourselves:
"Wouldn't be great if there was a service that would provide advanced warnings of weather issues in the growing regions for our commodities. A service that would inform us of coming rains or heat waves without having to check the internet or our phones everyday. With this kind of information we could take advantage of weather issues and be the ones who set the market, not react to it."
With this goal in mind we set off to build Weathermelon. But to provide you this advanced info on weather that affects your commodities first we needed to know where those crops were grown throughout the year.
So after many long hours of researching the growing regions of over 30 top commodities and designing and building this app we are finally ready to offer you the best thing to come along in the Produce Industry since sliced mangoes.
With Weathermelon at your fingertips you will never be caught off guard again by that freak rainstorm in Mexico that damage the tomato crop or that unseasonable heat wave that came through Salinas and flooded the market with lettuce. Now, as soon as the National Weather Service forecasts the weather you will know about it without having to lift a finger.
Welcome to the age of Weathermelon and thank you for your support.
