Sunriver has a real-time intelligence team that enables us to harvest our fruit at the optimal point of maturity, which matches the fruit to our customers' needs and guarantees a better product for our customers.
We combine this information with our assessment of customer demand to schedule all harvest activities. This allows us to get the best fruit to you when you need it – fresh off the tree or vine. With our diverse portfolio of land throughout California, as well as our dynamic harvesting labor force, we often find areas to pick fruit when others cannot due to poor weather. Once the harvest schedule is determined, our citrus and vine products are handpicked and placed in containers for transport to one of our packing facilities.
