Eden Montmorency Dried Tart Cherries are from 'transitional to organic' orchards that are in the process of becoming certified organic while using organic methods without chemicals. Eden's cherries are grown near the east shore of northern Lake Michigan, an ideal and historic tree fruit producing area due to its seasonal lake effect. Almost a decade ago six families in this region asked Eden to help them convert their orchards to organic. These original orchards have now been managed organically for nine years and more orchards are being converted to organic each year.
Unlike most dried fruit, Eden Dried Montmorency Tart Cherries contain no added refined sugar and we use NO sulfites, chemical preservatives or additives of any kind.
