Each is approximately 80g, which counts as one fruit (in your recommended 2 per day) with antioxidants, phenolic compounds, fibre and loads of vitamins!

- Freshest in summer.
- Good for salad, snacks, dessert, jam, marinades. Eat firm and crunchy or when riper, soft, juicy (lower in acid).
- Store in airtight container / bag in fridge when they're ripe ( when you can softly press in with a gentle palm). Leave them in a paper bag to ripen at room temp.
