nuts are different and fruits are different. so when we say eat dry fruits that means eat dry fruits – so please don’t eat nuts. almond, kaju, walnut, coconut, all that has “nut” as the last word are nuts not fruits. there is a vast difference between dry fruits and dried fruits. Generally when we say dry fruits we consider the dried one also but it is not so. There is a thin line of difference between the two.
Dry fruits are basically natural and are of hard texture. Dry fruits are again divided into dehiscent – that whose seeds are contained in a seapod and indehiscent- those which are not in seedpod e.G cashewnuts, almonds, walnut, pista etc.
Dried fruits on the other hand are natural fleshy fruits which are dried either naturally or through machines such as food dehydrator e.G raisins, figs, cherries, apricots etc.
From dried banana chips to dried cherries to crystallized ginger and other exotic flavors, our dried fruit selection is tantalizing. And the best part about it is that you can eat dried fruits year round, as they are always “in season.”
