Grapes — Pomegranates — Sweet Bursts™ — Persimmons

Grapes - From Our Family to Yours

Whatever your favorite—red, black, or green—the DJ Forry Company has worked to bring the best Central Valley California Grapes to your table for over 40 years. That’s why DJ Forry works with farmers that bring a rich tradition of growing not only some of the best-tasting grapes from California, but also in utilizing the latest, most up to date farming and harvesting methods to ensure only the best and safest grapes reach your table.

How to Choose Grapes. First, look for the “bloom.” Grapes grow with a delicate white substance called “bloom.” Bloom is Mother Nature’s way of protecting grapes. When you find grapes in your local market that still have their bloom, you know they are fresh. Second, look for grapes that are plump, not wrinkled, and always look for fresh green stems. If you are a fan of green grapes, don’t shy away from a yellow coloring—what we call “amber.” That slight yellow color is just a sign of sugar.

Pomegranates - Sinfully delicious

Pomegranates are an important member of the DJ Forry fruit offerings. While the majority of our pomegranates come from the Kern River Valley in California, we also import pomegranates from Chile, Peru, and India.

Some Fruits Have to Wait a Long Time for Their Day in the Sun. Pomegranates have been around since the dawn of man. Some biblical scholars believe the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden may have in fact been a pomegranate.

It’s really easy to eat a pomegranate. The best way to get to the juicy seeds, or arils, is to peel them under water. First, fill a large bowl with water that’s comfortable to the touch. Then cut both the flowering and stem end from the pomegranate, score the fruit from top to bottom then dunk in the water. As you peel the pomegranate, the seed cavity membrane will float and the seeds will sink to the bottom of the bowl. This is a great activity for the kids!

Pomegranate Arils - Nourishment in every bite

Sweet Bursts™ All Natural Fresh Pomegranate Arils are a great snack for everyone in your family. If you like sweet, crunchy, juicy snacks literally bursting with flavor then you will love Sweet Bursts™. Sweet Bursts™ are fantastic right out of the package or as an ingredient in your favorite dish. Enjoy them now and later with our handy two separate serving package. Bursting with vitamin C, potassium and antioxidants in every bite, you have a snack you can feel great about.

Available Year Round! We believe you should be able to nourish your family with great tasting healthful Sweet Bursts™ any time you like, so when our California farming partners are finished for the year, we work with trusted partners in Chili and Peru to bring you Sweet Bursts™ when you want them. So whenever you are looking for great healthy snacks, Sweet Bursts™ will be there.

Persimmons - or is it Persimm-yums?

The DJ Forry Company has been bringing the versatile persimmon to kitchen tables around the country for decades. Like all other produce we bring to market, we insist that our farming partners utilize the latest, most up to date farming and harvesting methods to ensure only the best and safest persimmons reach your table.

Which Persimmon is for Me? There are two basic types of persimmons: astringent varieties used in baking, and non-astringent for eating out of hand. We bring to market the Hachiya variety for baking and the Fuyu variety for eating out of hand much like an apple. Whether you are looking for persimmons to cook or eat out of hand, make sure that they feel heavy for their size and aren’t bruised or shriveled.

NEWS: WHAT MAKES A BETTER GRAPE?

Pursuing Quality not Quantity

In a time where producing 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 all the little things to produce the best tasting fruit, not just the most fruit, is alive and well in every carton grown by the DJ Forry Family of growers.

A Family Tradition

In 1972, Dewey John Forry decided to start a business dedicated to helping farmers bring their produce to market. A family business built on traditional family values: trust, integrity, loyalty, and honesty.

Decades later, the DJ Forry Company is still a family run business that holds those same values as guiding principles.

Dewey Forry Sr.

Dewey Forry, Senior is the family patriarch and founder of D.J. Forry Company. The same year the business was founded, 1972, Dewey was able to develop grower relations with the Kovacevich family, a relationship that still continues to this day. In 2001, Dewey retired from the family business and was able to watch it flourish and grow as both of his sons and grandson took the business to new heights he never imagined.

Dewey Forry Jr.

Dewey Forry was the youngest of the Forry children. He joined the family business in 1978 after a 7 year stint playing baseball for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Dewey specialized in the export side of the business and served as President of the company from 2001 until his passing in 2017.

John Forry

John Forry, the eldest son of Dewey Forry, Senior, came to work for his father in 1996. He brought with him, over 30 years of sales knowledge and experience. As a new team member in the family business, John worked to further develop domestic sales. John took the reigns of the company in 2017 upon the passing of his younger brother Dewey.

Mike Forry

Mike Forry is the grandson of Dewey Forry, Senior and the son of John Forry. Mike represents the third generation of family in the business. Mike officially came on as a full-time employee in 2001, but has helped with the business since 1997 when he was a junior in high school. Mike assumed the position of President of DJ Forry upon the retirement of his father John, in 2020.
