Dried fruits are naturally resistant to spoilage and with care will keep
for months. Air and heat can cause the fruit to dry and harden, so it is necessary to keep unopened packages in cool, dry places at temperatures below 30 degree C. Open fruit should be kept in airtight containers, such as glass jars. If in humid conditions it may be necessary to refrigerate. Dried fruit can also be stored in the freezer for long periods of time and will thaw quickly at room temperature.
