Your Season-Long Cantaloupe Supplier!

Farmed in Mendota, California, the “Cantaloupe Capital of the World”, our cantaloupes are grown using the standardized principals of Good Agricultural Practices, and our farms are regularly audited and certified by independent third-party inspectors to ensure we have met or exceeded the most stringent quality and food safety standards.

In addition to using environmentally friendly drip irrigation, all of Pappas Family Farms’ cantaloupes are dry field packed by hand. Extensive research conducted by the California Cantaloupe Advisory Board and UC Davis food safety experts have determined dry field packing ensures that the cantaloupes are handled as little as possible, reducing the potential of exposure to microbes and bacteria. Thanks to our new packing facility our cantaloupes are harvested, packed, cooled and shipped to customers within hours!

Our state-of-the-art cooling facility allows us to quickly cool the product down to its ideal temperature of 32°. This minimizes the conversion of sugars to starch, delivering a farm fresh taste consumers will love.
