The Sonora grape season has been past its peak for about 15 days now and volumes of regular green and red grapes have started going downhill. Grapes will get harvested and shipped for another two weeks, but shipments are rapidly decreasing from the peak of 600,000 boxes per day. “This is bittersweet as the quality of the regular grapes from Sonora is always at its best towards the end of the season,” says Carlos Bon with Divine Flavor. When early varieties like Flame and Prime hit the market, the brix level is often low and this year, the fruit was small in size. “Now, in the later part of the season, Sweet Celebration™ and Sweet Globe™ are showing fantastic sizing and great eating quality,” said Bon.
