Sun Belle blackberries in peak production

Optimal temperatures and growing conditions are resulting in peak production of Sun Belle blackberries and Green Belle organic blackberries from central Mexico through late May.

Premium proprietary varieties Aketzali and Amelali, as well as the new Erandy variety, provide consumers with large, shiny, flavorful, sweet blackberries.

“The sunlight and beautiful spring weather on our farms are producing abundant volumes of extra sweet berries, sure to delight consumers and move retail sales,” Janice Honigberg, Sun Belle president and founder, said in a news release. “Packed on the farm, our blackberries then go to one of our five distribution centers where they are carefully inspected to ensure the highest quality product for our retail partners and their customers.”

Sun Belle proprietary blackberries were recently spotlighted at the Produce for Better Health Consumer Connection, impressing registered dieticians, nutritionists, and lifestyle influencers with their color, size, texture, and flavor profile.

Sun Belle markets and distributes blackberries year-round. The company imports the Aketzali, Amelali and Erandy varieties from Mexico from August through mid-June, and markets University of Arkansas varieties from Georgia, North Carolina, New Jersey and Arkansas throughout the summer.
