“Our family has been a proud California stone fruit grower for decades – we are now in our fourth generation,” said Tim Thiesen, who also manages the DulceVida™ test orchard in Reedley, California. “Even though it takes several years to plant, grow and test these very special varieties, we really love growing these amazing DulceVida™ nectarines for Giumarra. We are very passionate about providing such high-quality California-grown stone fruit for consumers to enjoy across the United States.”
Giumarra’s California-grown DulceVida™ nectarines are available in both high-graphic corrugated consumer boxes and plastic handled bags. The boxes are available in 2.5-lb. and 4-lb. options; the bags are available in a 2-lb. option.
