Strawberry Associates in Watsonville, California, BUT then it says, "product
of Chile."

You don't want to eat too much fruit from South America. There's no telling
what they spray on it down there, and for all intents and purposes, nobody
checks.

They are FABULOUS. I bought 2 little 4-oz packages, still have one left.
They were very fresh and sweet. As we say in the south, "go git you sum,
grrrrrl!"

The grapes we're buying right now are from Chile, as well as
blackberries, blueberries, raspberries. Delicious, each and every one.
After all, it's late spring there! Amazing that they can ship them and
have them arrive sweet and fresh.
