New York Raisins & Prunes

"Sun Mad" is by Esther Hernandez, 1982.

New York grows grapes, New York grows plums. Where are the raisins and prunes? If you know of a NY (or close) farm that sells raisins or prunes, would you let me know?

When searching for my little wrinkled friends, I did come across the very interesting raisin tree. Ooh, those pesky Rare Fruit Growers!


  1. I, too, would love to know where to find local raisins! I live in Brooklyn and ran across your comment in a Google search for New York State raisins. If you find any resources I'd love to know. My email is: Thank you and good luck with your quest!

  2. Ditto to the comment above about finding your post when trying to google search interesting raisins in NY. Hah.. email me at if you do come across them? ;) much appreciated..... the best I've done so far is chinatown and I hear rumors about a market in brooklyn that I have yet to visit, so my knowledge is incomplete.
