Celebrating 70 Years of Fresh, Delicious Produce
So much has changed since our start in 1949, and we’re thrilled we’ve had the opportunity to serve many customers over the last 70 years. Throughout this time, we have developed a vast grower network. Consistency, reliability, and product expertise uniquely contribute to the ease of doing business with Capital City Fruit. We look forward to serving our current and future customers for the next 70 years and beyond.
Committed to Consistent Produce When You Want It, Where You Want It, How You Want It
We are a grower, shipper, repacker, and supply chain manager of fresh fruits and vegetables. Our primary goal is to provide you with high-quality service and consistent produce delivered to your specifications. We’ve built a global network of family farms and growers across the U.S., Mexico, Canada, Europe, South America, Central America, and locally throughout the Midwest that is capable of delivering produce that meets our customers’ expectations. To ensure consistent quality and supply of product, we transition around various growing regions throughout the year to always deliver required product specifications to our customers.

From Local Orchard to National Network
Joe Comito’s love for produce began when his father, Joe Comito Sr., started a fruit stand in Des Moines in 1949 and soon after acquired an orchard. Now owned and operated by three of the Comito brothers, Kieran, Brendan, and Christian, Capital City Fruit now has farms around the world and still works closely with customers to provide high-quality, delicious produce to their end-users.
