Origins of Chilean produce

Regarding the article "Chile's Produce Pleases US Palates," March 5: I wish the author had described how the produce is shipped to the United States. If the fish is fresh, how long is it in transit? How are the peaches shipped? Are they picked green? Do the grapes come over by air?

In the US the fruit doesn't taste as good as in Santiago, especially peaches, which appear to be picked green for shipment here. Walter C. Granville, Libertyville, Ill.
