In spring, Mexico plays a crucial role in the supply of table grapes to the US and Canadian markets. Harvest kicks off in the Guaymas growing region in Sonora in May, and gradually transitions to Hermosillo, before it finishes up in the Caborca growing region in Sonora around July. Mexico has a unique window as it comes on the heels of South America’s season and aims to be out of the market before California starts up. Back in the early 1990s, Alan Aguirre and his brother-in-law Carlos Bon Sr. and father-in-law Enrique Camou saw an opportunity to start a table grape operation in Mexico and Grupo Alta was formed.
