Frequently Asked Questions
How many fruits come in a box?
Each box contains one pound of hoshigaki, which is 8-13 fruits depending upon their weight.
How long will they keep and how should I store them?
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 ready for distribution and they still look and taste great!
Is shipping available?
No. We hope to one day be able to ship our hoshigaki, but for now they are only available for local pickup in Santa Cruz.
