News: 2018 Grape Season Preview

Our 2018 grape season is inching closer to kicking off every day!

Grape imageSufficient water over the winter months and unseasonably cool weather this spring look to have had a positive impact on quality; we’re already seeing significant size in our early red flame seedless grapes as noted by the picture to the right.

However; the same growing environment seems to have pushed maturity back a few weeks versus last year. As a result, we see light volume throughout the month of July and perhaps into the first couple of weeks of August before volume starts to kick in.

As we move through the season, we’ll be offering the latest varieties of seedless grapes:

Red Seedless:

  • Flames
  • Krissy
  • Scarlet Royal
  • Sweet Scarlet
  • Timco
  • Allison
  • Vintage Red

Green Seedless:

  • Princess
  • Valley Pearl
  • Autumn King
  • Great Green

Black Seedless:

  • Autumn Royal
  • Summer Royal

Red Seeded:

  • Red Globe

News: What Makes a Better Grape?

On average, K5 Farms produces around 800 cartons of Flame Seedless Grapes per acre. That’s over 30% less than they could produce.

Better grape imageIn a time where having to produce more with less…More gross profit, more sales per labor hour, more sales per square foot, more cases per acre is the mantra of the day, it’s refreshing when the principle of doing things the way you believe should be done outweigh the need to produce more. Meet the Kovacevich family of K5 Farms, our most tenured grape grower.

The Kovacevich family been growing grapes for over forty years, and they do know how to do things right. Take Flame Red Seedless Grapes; the typical industry standard is to produce 1,000 to 1,200 cartons of grapes per acre. The Kovacevich family believes that the key to producing the largest, sweetest, grapes with the highest nutritional value is to produce fewer cartons per acre. On average, K5 Farms produces around 800 cartons of Flame Seedless Grapes per acre. That’s over 30% less than they could produce. So they sacrifice quantity to produce quality. A better tasting, better looking, larger grape packed with lots of nutrition. That’s dedication to growing only the best…that’s more for your money.

News: The Local Farmer

Forty years later, the DJ Forry company is still a family-run business that holds those same values and guiding principles.

That’s because our farming partners operate their farms just like farmers in any part of the country. Their goals are the same—to produce the best fruit possible in order to support their families and their farming operation. They are family-owned and operated. Many of our farming partners have worked their land for generations.

Passion is hard to define, but you know it when you see it. We believe every great tasting piece of fruit starts with a grower that has a passion for growing great fruit. Passion shows in the way they cultivate the land and in the way they harvest and handle their fruit to ensure you and your family enjoy every piece.


From Passion flows Innovation. Beyond the time honored growing practices that define a grower of consistently great produce, what new ideas might yield better tasting, better for you fruit? Our farming partners are always asking, "What if?"


All of our farming partners believe that safe to eat produce is the best produce. Our partners follow strict protocols through adhering to Good Agricultural Practices (GAP’s), 3rd party safety audits, and Produce Industry Traceability Initiatives (PTI’s) to ensure that we know where every piece of fruit we sell comes from.
