Sunsweet Commemorates 100 Years

Sunsweet fresh prune plums

 

Louis Pellier brought the first d’Agen prune plum tree root to California from France during the Gold Rush. The trees took so well to the California climate that soon prune orchards spread throughout northern and central California.

This lead to the founding of Sunsweet in 1917, a co-op that would eventually become the #1 prune producer in the world.  View the slideshow.
