Prunes with Pit – NT-4010

Prunes are delicious dried fruits obtained after drying ripe plums.

Roughly, three pounds of fresh plums yield one pound of prunes. Being a “drupe” family fruit, dried plum features a single, hard inedible pit.

Naturizon hand selects plums and dries them within their facility. This level of control allows Naturizon to ensure the consistent high quality of the prunes being offered.
