Raisin crop comes in short on tonnage
Sep 24, 2014
California’s 2014 raisin grape crop was expected to be off the vines and lying on drying trays before Sept. 20. That’s the deadline for growers to have them on the ground to qualify for insurance should rain damage the grapes before they are picked up and put into bins.
Just about all of the U.S. raisin supply is produced in Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera and Tulare counties.
