Grapes are one of the most versatile fruits that humans have ever cultivated. You can eat them fresh, press into wine or vinegar, and of course, dry them into raisins. Gourmet Nuts and Dried Fruit is proud to offer multiple varieties of bulk raisins.
About Our Bulk Raisins
Raisins are produced all over the world, from eastern Asia to the western United States. It is believed that they were first discovered when farmers cultivating vines of grapes noticed dried grapes among the fresh ones on the bunches. Since then, raisins have become an important way of preserving grapes for later consumption. There are as many varieties of raisins as there are different sorts of grapes.
