Peter Ullrich was indeed a pioneer in the floral business. He started by buying South American Flowers and picking them up in his MG at JFK airport and delivering them to wholesalers in NY. He ended up owning huge farms and an impressive import business in Miami. Condor Farms. Along the way he bought and sold Challenge Airlines and I can only imagine how many other project he was involved in.
A very honorable gentleman and I would even say a friend.
It is always a sad moment when a man who worked so hard and long to become a legend in Floral and then retires and dies before he can really enjoy the fruits of his labor. But knowing Peter, he enjoyed work more than anything and I suppose therefore lived and died doing what he loved best.
