VARIETIES

A dried grape for every taste and purpose

SULTANAS

The quality of Australian sultanas is world renowned. They have a soft texture, sweet taste and unique golden colour – perfect for snacking and baking.

Sultanas comprise several flavoursome varieties, including the more traditional Thompson Seedless along with Merbein Seedless, Selma Pete, and the newer Sunglo. Fruit is dried on the vine and sprayed with a natural drying oil around harvest time to fast track the process. This drying technique creates the sultana’s light base colour that can’t be found anywhere else.

FRUITY FACT:

Australian Sultanas are naturally preserved through sun-drying, are packed with vitamins & minerals and known for their quality worldwide.

CHARACTERISTICS:

“Sultanas are ideal for snacking & baking & should be stored in a dry, well ventilated area.”

Australian currants are deliciously sweet and tangy, making them ideal for snacking and cooking. Unique to Australia, Carina currants are high-quality, small, seedless black berries that are plumper and juicier than traditional varieties. This variety has been developed to deliver consistently high yields, which guarantees supply to the market every year.

Fruit is dried on the vine under the Australian sun, using the same process as the sultana, which creates its distinct honey colour.

Sunmuscats are a highly fruitful and popular variety. Enjoy their zesty flavour.
