Quality and size are the two factors in grapes that most care about, and Crown Jewels ensure that its grapes are tops in both categories.
For the 2020 season in the San Joaquin Valley, the company is predicting a better-than-average crop and should be harvesting soon.
“It looks very good right now, as the weather conditions have been ideal during bloom until late May,” Thomason said. “We spare no expense to get the biggest and best quality grapes. Of course, weather plays a factor in things we can’t control, but so far, that hasn’t been an issue for 2020.”
Naturally, what has been an issue is the same thing that has impacted just about every produce company this year — the COVID-19 pandemic. Crown Jewels has remained open and adapted to the environment quickly and safely.
