These fancy prunes are made from plums grown in the Agen region of France. The climate and terrain act in harmony to create plums of extraordinary quality. They are made into prunes without preservatives using a special all natural, patented deep vacuum method. The pits are then removed. St. Dalfour keeps the tender, plump quality of the prunes. They are not dry or hard, they are succulent. They are the best pitted prunes in the world.
