Greenberg and Pandol are both watching Peru’s table grape production, as is Tjerandsen. All three said Peru’s export volumes to the U.S. are so low that the South American country’s impact on the table grape deal is not expected to be too dramatic.

“It is the new sexy thing, though,” Pandol said. “Timing is the key for Peru. The question is will they challenge Chile. We haven’t seen any yet.”

Pandol said Peru ships about as many seedless grapes in its entire season as the Golden State does in a week.

The Chileans seem to always keep the facts hidden on what is arriving in the USA. Take the meltdown in the market in December 2011 as a pefect example. There was so much darn fruit coming in that the market collapsed causing millions of dollars in loss to all parties. I have never seen such foolish marketing in my life. There is a simple truth that must be understood. You cannot lie to the market, everything will be exposed and the market will react accordingly. All these Chileans have done is made a lot of enemies and ruined their name and reputation worldwide.
