Looking for IFG? This is our current site. We’re working on improving our site as one of the world's largest fruit-breeding operations. In terms of fruit, we like to find an existing need in the market, create a variety designed to fill that need, and then license that variety to a limited number of growers and marketers to ensure quality and supply meets market demands. In this case, we found we needed a new website and are working to fulfill that demand.
Since our inception in 2001, International Fruit Genetics has been guided by one simple but bold vision: create and develop the best-tasting varieties of table grapes and cherries on earth.
Today we’re helping growers like you, all over the world. Every member of our team digs in and works harder than ever. We are eager to provide vineyard support and help make sure our fruit varieties return superior results (profit margins) for our licensee/grower-partners with an eye on today and tomorrow.

Exceptional grape varietals like Cotton Candy® have received worldwide acclaim, generating industry headlines and captivating consumers on every continent. That publicity combined with our outstanding marketing support is unbeatable.
