ABOUT California TABLE GRAPES
Californians have been cultivating grapes for more than two centuries. Today, 99 percent of U.S. table grapes are produced in California's warm, dry climate that is ideal for grape growing. With 81 grape varieties grown, California grapes come in three colors—green, red, and black—and are in season from May through January.
