Who grows Dinosaur Eggs?

The Jackson family began farming in England in 1813, eventually bringing their legacy across the Atlantic, first to Tennessee, then to California. That family farming tradition is alive and well today at Kingsburg Orchards. They are the largest Family Owned grower, packer and shipper of fresh fruit in California’s fertile San Joaquin Valley. George, his sons Mike and Brent, his son-in-law John Diepersloot, and his grandsons: Ryan, Matt, Greg, and Jake, along with his grandsons-in-law Brody and Cody, are all growers for the company.


Despite its long history and significant size, Kingsburg Orchards is able to adapt quickly to meet the demands of today’s sophisticated consumer. As a result, the company is considered an industry leader in the production of such unique varieties as Asian apple pears, white flesh peaches, white flesh nectarines, pluots and apriums.


Kingsburg Orchards invests heavily in its own exclusive nursery program – a program that focuses on creating new proprietary varieties, perfecting plant husbandry and improving orchard management. All to grow consistently great eating, superior looking, long-lasting fruit. There are currently over 50 different varieties of Dinosaur Egg pluots grown exclusively by Kingsburg Orchards.

Still family-owned and operated, Kingsburg Orchards grows more than 200 fruit varieties on over 8,000 acres, and packing over 8 million cases of fresh fruit each season.
