Where are California Raisins grown?
To grow raisins that are consistently top quality you need to have plenty of sunshine, a long hot growing season and plenty of water.
What better place than the San Joaquin Valley. Situated between the Sierra Nevada and costal range mountains, within a 70 mile radius of Fresno in California. The valley is one of the most fertile places on earth. It's sheltered from the wind and rain with temperatures as high as 44°C and irrigated by the pure mountain waters of the Sierra Nevada. 240 miles long and 50 miles wide, this area is the centre of the raisin industry in California.
