The Winters Fruit Tree business began during the 1930s in the Santa Clara Valley as a small farm selling mostly cherries and apricots to local food processors. With the urban growth of the Santa Clara Valley, the farm relocated to Winters in the Sacramento Valley in 1968 where they concentrated on the drying of fruit, mostly apricots and prunes, under the name of The Fruit Tree. By 1969, the son of the original founders opened a year-round fruit stand on State Highway 128 where they sold both dried and fresh fruit. With the development of the stand, they expanded to selling other products such as almonds, pistachios, and walnuts.
The bulk of Winters Fruit Tree's business now revolves around wonderfully-flavored almonds, pistachios, and walnuts. Winters Fruit Tree offers more than 40 different flavored nuts and are continually expanding their selection. In addition to this wide assortment, they also sell dried fruit, local honey and jams, and nut brittles.
