What is hoshigaki?

A rarity known as “the Kobe beef of fruit,” these delicacies are grown and processed in Santa Cruz County. After carefully harvesting, peeling, and hanging them, they air dry for a month or more, and receive a hand massage every few days to bring out their sugars.

Frequently Asked Questions

Each box contains one pound of hoshigaki, which is 8-13 fruits depending upon their weight. The 1/2 lb bags typically have 4-6 fruits.

As a sweet and dried fruit, Hoshigaki have a very long shelf life. While we find that the flavor and texture are best right when they are finished drying, and for the 2-3 months following, they certainly can be enjoyed much later. Storing them in airtight glass jars is not only a beautiful way to display your Hoshigaki but also keeps them from drying out or taking on moisture. This will extend their shelf life. Additionally, Hoshigaki freeze and thaw very well without losing their texture and flavor. We’ve had Hoshigaki from the freezer 12 months after they were initially dried and they still look great and are delicious!
