Stone Fruit

Peaches, Plums and Nectarines

As the Stone fruit industry has been contracting, Ultra Gro's business has recently been growing.  As testimony to the "value" found in our products, the grower roster has increased by over 30 "new" growers in the last couple of years.  Many of these growers have found that "it pays to produce quality".  Our products are commonly used because of their ability to enhance sizing, coloring and yield as well as frost and sunburn protection.  Our service area for stone fruit includes Kern County and the Central Valley.
