Pacific Trellis Fruit Launches Black Jam Grapes

Pacific Trellis

Los Angeles, California-based Pacific Trellis Fruit is ramping up programs for an exclusive black seedless variety of grapes.

“JAM grapes deliver that jam flavor taste and are similar to the Concord variety in flavor and appearance, however, they are 100 percent seedless and have thinner skin,” said Josh Leichter, CEO.

“They have been very well received by the industry since their introduction as a way to capture incremental sales opportunities in the table grape category and we are very excited to offer this program to our customers.”

The JAM variety is exclusively grown in Brazil. The availability windows in the U.S. Market are October through February and again March through May, with the potential for year-round availability in ideal weather conditions. 

“We are always looking at ways to extend the market window, and because of Brazil’s location along the equator, they have the ability to harvest two commercial crops per year,” Leichter said.

Pacific Trellis Fruit is one of the largest importers of grapes from South America. JAM grapes, available in 10, one-pound clamshells, are part of a line of one-pound specialty grapes including  Cotton Candy, Candy Snaps, Candy Dreams and Candy Hearts, all sold under the Premium Dulcinea brand.

Pacific Trellis Fruit is one of North America’s top year-round importers, growers and marketers of fresh fruit, including melons, grapes, stonefruit, cherries and citrus. In 2014, Dulcinea was acquired by Pacific Trellis Fruit and became their consumer-facing brand. Dulcinea is the pioneer of the PureHeart seedless watermelon, the Tuscan-Style cantaloupe and SunnyGold yellow mini seedless watermelon. Pacific Trellis Fruit also features Kiss Melons.

Pacific Trellis’ corporate headquarters is in Los Angeles, with sales offices in Fresno, California; Gloucester, New Jersey; and Tucson, Arizona.
