Awe Sum Organics started the 10th season of its organic Peruvian winter table grape program. The company helps to fill the winter organic fruit void with high-quality organic table grapes from early December, when the California grape season is finishing up, well into April.

Loading on both coasts during the winter months, Awe Sum Organics’ Peruvian table grapes offer customers a full and reliable supply.

The company begins the winter organic grape season with grapes from northern Peru and finishes the season with its southern Peruvian organic grape production. “Our growers’ organic table grape vineyards in northern and southern Peru combine to provide a good supply all winter long of red and green seedless grapes and now we have a top-quality South African organic table grape grower helping us to fill the transition period between our northern Peru and our southern Peru harvests,” said David Posner, founder, president and CEO of Awe Sum Organics.

“Our crisp and sweet flavor speaks volumes,” said Posner. “Awe Sum Organics started this project to grow grapes organically in Peru over 15 years ago. Our organic Peruvian red and green seedless grapes have been in development since early 2007 when I dreamed of creating an organic table grape program for U.S. and Canada for the winter months to be available starting when California finishes and until Sonora Mexico begins to complement the domestic grape season. There are many challenges to growing table grapes organically in Peru for shipment to the US and Canada, and we have worked through all of them over the years.”

In addition to outstanding taste and quality, our fruit embodies core ethics which we will never compromise. We believe in doing what is right for humankind, and the environment as a whole,” said Posner.
