California Green and Dried Fruit Company was a dried and fresh fruit packer in San Jose.

The manager from 1889 to 1900 was George Draper Worswick[1]. The company frustrated the industry in 1895 by opening a second centralized auction house in New York City to sell California fruit[2].

The San Jose packing house site on First Street at Bassett appears to have later become the Porter Brothers packing house.
