Title: Grape Variety Acreage in Arizona and California
Author: H.P. Olmo
Grape production in Arizona is confined to early table grapes produced in a hot, dry desert climate. The total acreage has not varied much during the last decade. The acreages for 1978 are given in Table 5. Thompson Seed less is the leading variety, followed by Perlette. Maturity is somewhat later than in California's Coachella Valley and the threat of rain damage during harvest is more likely.

There are two growing regions, one near Yuma, the other near Glendale in Maricopa County, northwest of Phoenix. Value of the crop was about 13.5 million dollars in 1978.
