Peruvian Grape Season
California grape season is officially over and we are now transitioning to Peruvian grapes. This is the first year that organic Fair For Life, grapes from Peru have been available. Fair for Life certified by IMO Switzerland, guarantees fair wages, good working conditions and social responsibility at each and every stage of production and throughout the distribution chain.
Earl’s first shipment of sweet, crisp and flavorful green seedless Sugraone grapes will arrive next Monday and supplies will last for about 3 weeks. Sugraones will be followed by red globe seeded grapes, with exceptional size, color and flavor towards the end of January and will continue for about 2 weeks. For those of you who want to maintain your grape displays now is a great time to make the easy switch.
Earl’s will have grapes from Peru sporadically through March, followed by a small gap before grapes from Mexico arrive in mid-May. The Mexican season could be as short as one or two weeks. As soon as California season starts up at the end of May we will only be buying California grapes. Stay tuned for updates on when the California season starts up again.
