Four Star Fruit reflects on the concluding California grape season
Four Star Fruit, a premier full-service grower and marketer of year-round table grapes, is finishing the California grape season strong and transitioning to the Peruvian and Chilean import season, beginning harvest this month.
The California growing season this year was tumultuous due to the extremely hot weather creating problematic growing conditions and higher input costs, resulting in a strain on retail prices. Overall, from positive consumer feedback, Four Star Fruit saw success with its propriety Pristine and Holiday seedless grape varieties this season.
“At Four Star Fruit, we take pride in being able to provide premium fruit 52 weeks a year,” said Jack Campbell, president of Four Star Fruit. “Our team is continually developing and expanding our grape offerings, so be on the lookout for our new high-flavor varieties in 2023.”
As the company looks toward future growth, it announced an increase in its southern hemisphere volume by 20 percent for 2023. Four Star Fruit offers conventional and organic grapes in a variety of pack styles, including sustainable options, catering to current customer and consumer preferences.
