Proud partner with NWA for 8 years.
Spring is in the air out here in the West and
we are very excited for the upcoming watermelon season! We kicked off our year
with our annual Western Watermelon Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada in January.
The convention was well attended and was
an overall positive experience for growers,
shippers and members of the industry. A
big thank you Tashi Zouras for putting on
another great event and to everyone that
participated this year!
We were extremely excited to welcome the
National Watermelon Association to the
West this year at the National Watermelon
Convention in February. This year’s convention was held in beautiful North Lake
Tahoe and was a very fun and exciting
We are anticipating the 2017 domestic season to be a positive one. We have received
much needed rainfall here in the West over
the past few months, helping with ongoing water supply issues. Domestic fruit
will be available starting in May, with a
steady supply out of the desert regions, and
our growers down in Mexico still going
strong. We are anticipating a steady market
throughout the season with strong demand.
With summer right around the corner, we
are excited to get our delicious fruit into the
hands of watermelon lovers everywhere!
Cheers to everyone having a successful and
prosperous watermelon season!
