California Summer Grape Season Begins …Sweet!

Take advantage of great Champagne and Thomcord grape supply

LOS ALAMITOS, CA (July 2016) – Champagne and Thomcord grapes from California are now in season with good supply from Frieda’s Specialty Produce.

Champagne grapes are available from Frieda’s through early August in 16/1-lb. clamshells. Juicy Thomcord grapes are available through the end of August in 10/1-lb. clamshells.

Frieda’s recommends retailers display specialty grapes with other grape varieties or cross-merchandise with cheese and wine for summer entertainment ideas. Champagne grapes are an especially sweet deal for foodservice’s special summer menus as they are the perfect accompaniment on cheese or charcuterie platters and in picnic boxes.

Sweet California grape season continues through the fall with Yellow Sweetie grapes, starting in mid-August and available from Frieda’s in 16/1-lb. clamshells.

Interested retailers, wholesalers, and foodservice distributors can contact Frieda’s account managers to take advantage of specialty grapes and other favorite summer fruits like lychee and rambutan.
