Founded in 1999, Pacific Trellis Fruit is a year-round grower, shipper and marketer of premium fresh fruit. In 2014, the Dulcinea Farms brand joined Pacific Trellis Fruit, amplifying its product line of conventional and organic premium fruits such as melons and grapes.
This summer season brings an increased supply of its high-flavor organic varieties, which the company plans to highlight at the upcoming Organic Produce Summit.

“Our organic melon varieties are abundant this summer season,” said Howard Nager, director of marketing and business development for Pacific Trellis Fruit. “As consumer favorites, our Organic PureHeart Mini Seedless Watermelon and Organic Tuscan-Style Cantaloupes are sweet, flavorful and packed with nutrition. Perfect for summertime.”
The organic Dulcinea PureHeart melon, the original mini seedless watermelon, is available through the beginning of November, alongside the organic Tuscan-Style cantaloupe, which is available through September. Both melons are harvested from Mexico, Arizona and California and are on shelves nationwide.
Pacific Trellis Fruit is also sourcing red, green and black grapes from Mexico through June, continuing into the first half of July.
“In addition to Dulcinea melons, we are currently sourcing red, green and black grapes from Mexico through June, continuing into the first half of July,” says Nager. “We plan to have a limited amount of green and red organics this summer from California, but plan to follow up with all colors of organic availability from Peru in the first quarter of 2023.”
Pacific Trellis Fruit will attend the Organic Produce Summit in Monterey, California July 13-14. Company CEO Josh Leichter will be a panelist during the educational session "Private Label vs. Consumer Brand: The Competition for Shelf Space." The Pacific Trellis team will be on hand to discuss the many opportunities for organic melons and grapes this season at booth #812.
