Collection: Winters Fruit Tree
THE WINTERS FRUIT TREE BUSINESS BEGAN DURING THE 1920’S by their grandparents Paulina and Phillip Lupertino in the Santa Clara Valley as a small farm selling mostly cherries and apricots to local food processors. With the urban growth of the Santa Clara Valley, they relocated to Winters in the Sacramento Valley in 1967 where they began to concentrate on the drying of fruit, mostly apricots and prunes under the name Merry Rose Orchards. By 1968, their father William Arthur Carter, a Stanford and USF graduate in biochemistry with a concentration in food, built and opened a year-round fruit stand on State Highway 128 where we sold their dried and fresh fruit. With the development of the stand they began growing and selling other products such as almonds, pistachios, and walnuts.
They currently service many Bay Area and Sacramento farmers markets with their nuts. In their Winters fruit stand location they currently grow oranges, persimmons some vegetables and other fruits as well.
