All Things Holigrapes

Let’s talk merchandising; specifically, let’s talk the merchandising crunch that is summer through the new year. Back-to-school, Halloween, Thanksgiving, etc.—before you know it, it’s January first and, sooner than you think, the whole cycle will start once again. Pretty Lady grapes are a go-to snack/ingredient/charcuterie-board-enhancer for just about everyone (well, everyone with taste), so it’s […]

When you think about imbibing […]

“Fall” in Love With Hobgoblin Displays

As you check the weather on your phone app, in the local paper, or simply by walking outside, fall-related anything probably feels laughably far away. But, like a freight train filled with decorative gourds and too much nutmeg, fall is bearing down on us with great, crisp urgency. If you haven’t already, now is the […]

Don’t Labor Over Displays

As displays and merchandising go, few holidays are a better fit for fresh produce than Labor Day. This first Monday of each September marks the social and economic achievements of the American workforce; it’s fitting, then, that many of us celebrate it by taking time to rest, rejuvenate, and spend much-needed time with family. The […]

’Tis the Season (no, not that one)

Like it or not, back-to-school season is hurtling toward us at breakneck speed. And though the summer sun continues to warm our face and take the edge off the swimming pool’s icy waters, it’s time to start thinking brown bag lunches and grab-on-your-way-out-the-door breakfasts. The easiest way to stave off the September Scaries is to […]

Name That Grape

When it comes to Pretty Lady grapes, there’s much more to it than the simple question of “red” or “green.” Our grapes are multifaceted, nuanced, subtle, and surprising—in both appearance and flavor. Since grape season is just about in full swing, you’ll be getting more and more questions about your selection: flavor profile, availability, maybe […]

Get Ready for Grapes

It’s time to get ready for grape season. Bountiful fruit salad (red and green and black/mixed varieties, please and thank you), frozen grape “cubes,” and refreshing smoothies await. Can’t you just taste them? It’s what summer is all about. And, of course, Pretty Lady grapes are delicious all on their own—crisp and cool and fresh […]

Great Late Grapes

Now say that ten times fast! Luckily, mastery of tongue-twisters isn’t necessary to enjoy Pretty Lady’s late-season grapes. They’re all delicious, but we’re particularly excited about this year’s Green Emeralds. They have a fantastic shelf life and are. Absolutely. Huge. We love them fresh and rinsed and unadorned, but they are amazing in recipes as […]

Ho, boy! It’s Hobgoblin time!

Our Hobgoblin-branded merchandise boxes and cartons are natural superstars (or, for this time of year, “supernatural stars”) of the Halloween aisle, but a little birdie (in a bat costume) told us that these autumnal displays add a distinct fall flair to produce sections all season long. Healthy Halloween options that are actually fun and actually […]

Un-boring Your Brown Bag!

It may not feel like fall, but fall is, I assure you, bearing down on us like a pumpkin-spice-latte-bedecked freight train. Visions of PB&Js and baby carrots are dancing through our heads as we try to unlock the secret formula that will keep our crafty kiddos from dropping a half-eaten lunch into the wastebasket. Fruit […]

I wish they all could be California…

graaaaaappeeesss! With apologies to The Beach Boys, we think this sentiment couldn’t be more true. California is technically a newb when it comes to grape cultivation, because the Golden State has been in the biz for “only” 200 years (a mere fraction of the 8,000 years the human race has been growing grapes). So how […]
