The Eating Experience
A good eating experience is the Single Most important factor influencing customers to purchase and re-repurchase fruit. A poor eating experience will, surveys show, prevents a prospective customer from buying your fruit for 3 to 4 weeks! It’s flavor and only flavor that will make us successful in the future. This is why Kingsburg Orchards is focusing so strongly on our Research and Development program. We are in a never-ending search with our exclusive plant breeder to find the most “Consistently Great Eating Fruit". We devote 750 acres of our total acreage each year to plant new varieties. If they don’t perform, we take them out and start over. It is our desire that when you buy a piece of fruit from our orchards, you’ll never have to guess if it’s going to be good. Leave the guessing to us!
