Abstract

The United States leads the world in raisin production, accounting for nearly 40 percent of the global crop. All U. S. raisins are produced in California, where the Thompson Seedless variety, harvested on 100,000 acres annually, constitutes 90 percent of the raisin production. This variety is distinctive, because it is dried in the sun between vineyard rows without treatment.
