California prune harvest kicks off strong
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The prune harvest is now in full swing in California, and it's expected to last several weeks.
Growers report prunes are in high quality, though slightly smaller than last year's crop. The farmers say shoppers can expect a large selection of California-grown dried plums because of favorable weather during the growing season and harvest.
Most of the state's dried-plum production occurs in the Sacramento Valley.
