A deep bow or curtsy is in order for our noble and magnificent Autumn Royal Raisins! This prized variety of black grape raisins hails from the sun-soaked vines of California. Royals stand out for their seriously supreme size—in fact, they’re the largest variety of raisin on Earth. Royals have a gorgeous deep purple hue and a subtly spicy yet sweet, caramel-like taste. The skin of Royals is also notable for its pleasantly firm texture.
Naturally seedless Royals live up to their name and can be enjoyed in desserts, sweet breads, in cereals or on their own. Autumn Royals are not derived from and do not contain any GMOs. Royals were originally cultivated in Fresno, CA and are kin to Blackrose, Flame Seedless and Calmeria grapes.
Storing Royal Raisins
Autumn Royals are best kept in a cool, dry place and should be consumed within one year of purchase.
Autumn Royal Raisins Packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and milk products.
