At Blooms, we take pride in sharing nature’s best cherries with you!
Blooms is proudly owned and operated by the Chinchiolo Family which has long been a fixture in the agriculturally rich and abundant San Joaquin Valley of California.
From humble beginnings in Italy, the family crossed the Atlantic and planted roots in the United State, first settling in Massachusetts. During the elder Chinchiolo's time on the East Coast, he worked diligently to establish the family as a broker and seller of fruits for export, among the commodities were cherries, grapes, figs, and pears. In addition to exporting the produce, the family saw the beauty in farming the supply and, after a few short years in Massachusetts, moved again to settle in the Central Valley of California known for its excellent farming conditions. With four generations of farming expertise in the heart of California's Central Valley, you could say that the Chinchiolo family knows a thing or two about growing excellent produce.
A pride and joy for the Chinchiolo family is its Blooms operation which offers the highest quality and most premium cherries in the country – in the world of agriculture, this is oftentimes referred to as "export-quality" fruit. Hence, not a far cry from how the family business got its start.
Blooms owns and operates a working cherry orchard in the agriculturally rich San Joaquin Valley.
