Our Organic Persimmons come from a family-owned farm nestled in California's Central Valley. Such beautiful dried fruits as these are rare. The farm is both a Certified Organic fruit grower and Certified Organic processor, and the family has “discovered unique methods to protect organic grown and dried fruit from pests without any preservatives.” These high quality Organic Dried Persimmons are tart and full-flavored.
Dried persimmons make a delicious addition to cookies, breads, granola, yogurt, trail mix, or cooked cereals.
