Our season begins April with fruit coming out of the Kettleman City area. We have about 2,000 acres in order to provide a consistent supply of our proprietary items. While water can be scarce in the area, the warmer temperatures allow the fruit to develop a full month earlier than fruit grown on the East side of the valley. Not only does this allow us to provide you with flavorful fruit earlier in the season, but it also cuts back on the fuel emissions it takes to import fruit from other countries.
The majority of our crops are grown in and around our hometown of Kingsburg. The weather warms enough in May to ripen the fruit and production reaches its peak between July and August when temperatures reach into the 100-115°F range. We continue to pick fruit into October.
We have over 9,500 acres in production and harvest over 200 varieties of fresh fruit including White Peaches, White Nectarines, Pluots, Apple Pears and Apriums. While we’ve grown to become one of the largest grower, packer, and shippers in Central California’s San Joaquin Valley, we’ve always maintained our eye for detail and our commitment to quality.
