Seventeen years ago Classic Fruit was started by a small group of produce veterans with the only assets being themselves. Since then we have built one of the largest melon farming operations in Central America and continue shipping the Classic Fruit label throughout the domestic season through strong alliances that allows us the opportunity to truly be considered a year round melon shipper.

Thank you to all of our loyal customers, growers, employees and friends. We could not have reached this milestone without your support! We’re not slowing down and look forward, with high anticipation, because the best is yet to come.

After seedlings leave our greenhouses at Classic Guatemala, they are covered with a cloth material called Agribon which protect the transplants early in the growing cycle. Once that protective covering is removed, and blooms start to appear, it is time for Mother Nature to do her work with bee houses strategically placed throughout the fields. Stay tuned for what’s to come

Springtime melons from Classic Fruit…come experience the difference!
Many companies in the produce industry are built on the hard work of families from multiple generations. At Classic Fruit we are no different, with many having been raised in the industry on a farm, working in retail or as a shipper. This little guy already loves being on a tractor and maybe one day will represent us as the future generation of Classic Fruit.
