Full of moist, sweet freshness, they also make a great snack, sure to satisfy the sweetest tooth in your family! Here are the other reasons our family chooses Victor Organic Raisins…
How They’re Grown
The raisins start out as Thompson Seedless Grapes grown in the San Joaquin Valley, in Sunny California. The Victor farm has been family owned and run since 1928. Committed to organic methodology from their beginnings, they fertilize with only composted organic materials and green manures, instead of synthetic chemical fertilizers.
Since they are 100% certified organic, the weeds in the fields are controlled by hand or mechanical methods and insects are controlled by the use of predatory insects instead of chemical insecticides, ensuring beautiful, healthy fruit on the vine.
Once hand-picked, the raisins are set out on brown paper or fabric in the rows to be dried naturally by the sun. This is a very important step. Non-organic mechanical drying methods include microwave heating and the introduction of sulfur dioxide to speed up the drying process. Not the case with organic raisins!
Sun dried raisins turn a dark color because of the longer, more natural drying time in the sun. The non-organic raisins that are treated with sulfur dioxide and microwave heating are rapidly dried leaving them lighter in color.
Once the raisins are collected from the field, they are brought to the packing house. There, they are de-stemmed, cleaned with water, air dried and packaged for shipment.
From farm to home, Victor organic raisins are a great, health choice for our family’s table, and we’re sure you’ll love them too!
