“We are thrilled to add Gold Nuggets to our specialty citrus assortment,” said Jennifer Westerhoff, executive vice president of Classic Harvest. “I think this is one of the best eating citrus fruits in California. The artwork on the carton, PLU and bags offer retailers the option to market in bulk or bags with striking graphics that educate the consumer in a fun, retro way.”

The Classic Harvest Gold Nugget bags ship in a variety of sizes including popular two- and three-pound, along with a five-pound club store option. The bulk carton is a 30-pound carton with fun, bold PLUs in a variety of sizes from large to super colossal that will ship from WesPak in Dinuba, CA.

“This is our first year introducing a Gold Nugget, and we are thrilled with the retailer response,” said Classic Harvest President Linda Cunningham. “In designing our cool retro purple bag, we polled retailers and wholesalers to get feedback on the optimal design. Many retailers who had a sneak preview loved the bags and display cartons, and ordered early. We are now rolling out to the trade, and the feedback is fantastic. Retailers love the whimsical call-outs of the fruit attributes.”

Classic Harvest also offers Cara Cara oranges, Navels, lemons and a complete line of specialty citrus, providing a year-round citrus assortment.
