US (CA): Uesugi Farms heads to Coachella

Uesugi Farms is transitioning to harvesting peppers from Northern California to Southern California. With the Northern California pepper harvest coming to a close in the next few weeks, the next location for growing peppers on Uesugi Farms’ calendar is the Coachella Valley, where the plants are strong and the peppers are maturing nicely. Starting in November, Uesugi Farms moves their operations down to Mexico to grow green, red and yellow bell peppers, mini sweets and hot peppers.

“Being a year-round pepper supplier, the cycle just comes naturally. Right now we’re getting ready to start the Coachella harvest, where we’ll grow bells and minis. In November, we head to Mexico to grow the full gamut of peppers, which includes all the bells, minis and hot varieties. The Coachella harvest starts again from May through July where we’ll continue growing our bells and minis. Some overlapping will happen, since we also grow all our varieties in Bakersfield and Oxnard in June, July and part of August. We then move to Hollister, Morgan Hill, Brentwood, Lodi and Gilroy for the Northern California harvest, which starts in July and could run all the way into November if the weather cooperates,” said Pete Aiello, General Manager at Uesugi Farms.

Uesugi Farms expects another successful harvest in Southern California. Once Uesugi Farms completes their harvest in Coachella Valley, they’ll begin growing peppers again in Mexico.
