Dried Fruits & Nuts Back to List
The winter holiday season is the primary promotion period for dried fruit and nuts. Generally from October through December we carry a wide selection of packaged and bulk nuts, dried fruit and dates. All year we carry roasted peanuts in both 25 lb boxes and 24/10oz bags.

Additionally, we carry for the winter holiday season:
50 lb bags of top quality, in shell: mixed nuts, almonds, pecans, jumbo Hartley walnuts, filberts (hazelnuts), and brazil nuts.
25 lb boxes of loose and/or packaged: California natural and red pistachios, walnuts and mixed nuts.
Also various packages of fresh Deglet Noor and Medjool dates, pitted cup dates, and dried Turkish Apricots.

Check our price list during the season for the selection available. We will also special order an item you do not see on our list.
