The Willow Glen Fruit Union was a grower's cooperative in the Willow Glen section of San Jose. The organization was founded in 1893 as the "Willow Glen Fruit Grower's Union"[1]. The Union was also one of the key members of the Santa Clara County Fruit Exchange. The organization served as a fruit collection site for the California Cured Fruit Assocation in 1900.
