We are sailing in smooth waters after an unseasonal storm passed through much of California last week. The sun is out and our microclimate is warming up. This is making for good color on fruit and great volume! In this Focus Bo highlights our Summersweet label and explains why we're packing more in that brand than usual. For a quick FAQ on the "Summersweet opportunity", check below! He also shows how we grow trees that take advantage of the sun’s rays, and how we are already preparing for next year’s crop.

Now Harvesting: We are firing on all cylinders! Currently harvesting all commodities: White & Yellow Peaches & Nectarines, Plumcots, Plums & Apricots. Contact sales to order yours today!

Coming Up: Plan your donut peach promos early, they'll go fast. Galaxy White donut peaches are just a couple weeks away. 

Weather: We are heating up! (finally!) Our summer had a bit of a false start and double backed to spring for a few weeks, but now we are breaking into triple digits (about 40c).

Summersweet FAQ

Why are there more Summersweet brand boxes this year than normal??

The rain caused slightly more than average streaking and other cosmetic problems, making us divert fruit from our premium Summeripe brand to Summersweet. Summersweet still delivers the same premium taste, but is just cosmetically challenged and won't be winning any beauty pageants this season!

Why should we care about Summersweet if it’s not.. you know… the good stuff??

Now is your chance to get a value box with more premium quality fruit than ever!  As the weather warms and no rain in the forecast, more and more fruit will go into Summeripe, meaning there will be less Summersweet available.

How can I learn more or buy some??
