Abstract

D*Arrigo Bros. Co. of California, a grower, packer, and shipper of fresh fruits and vegetables,
currently farms about 6000 ha of crops in California and Arizona. We grow, pack, and ship
more than 30 different fresh fruits and vegetables, including the well-known vegetables---
lettuce, broccoli, and cauliflower---as well as lesser-known Italian specialty items, such as
fennel, broccoli rabe (an Italian mustard green), and, of course, cactus pears.
