Description

Organic Dried Black Mulberries are a taste sensation.

Organic Black Mulberries are a delicious and nutritious dried fruit to snack on when you want a change from dates and figs.  Their deep colour signifies a rich antioxidant content and this is what makes them differ from their friend, the organic white mulberry. When fresh, they look like big blackberries.

Organic dried black mulberries taste like chewy toffee or caramel, so they make a great healthy alternative to sweets.  Chinese herbal medicine has used mulberries for centuries and  the trees were traditionally grown for their leaves.  These organic dried black mulberries are pure and unprocessed.   Once they are hand-picked they are simply dried in the shade and then packed up carefully to retain their freshness.  If you have tried white mulberries and like them, you have to try these.
