Good-quality spring table grapes now are arriving from Mexico’s Jalisco growing area, and U.S. grape shipments from California’s Coachella Valley should get started in May.

Last year, Mexican growers sent about 25 million 18-pound boxes of table grapes to the U.S., said John Pandol, director of special projects for Delano, Calif.-based Pandol Bros. Inc. and chairman of the grape division of the Nogales, Ariz.-based Fresh Produce Association of the Americas.
