Prunes

prunesWe import prunes from two main countries of origin, Chile France.

Chile is our main source for conventional prunes, which grow mainly in the Valparaiso and Santiago regions.

The only variety of prune which we purchase is the D’Agen prunes.

Between the main growing regions there are around 115km2 of plum orchards.

The biggest risk that this crop faces is extreme weather conditions which can have a serious impact if encountered in the bloom stage, and can still damage the fruit at any point in the growing process.

There is very little domestic consumption of prunes in Chile, the main uses are for hotel catering and public health programmes.

We can offer a variety of different sizes from both origins either pitted or unpitted.
