The Sweet Sue gets its name from Suren Melkonian, better known as “Sue” by those that loved him. The son of immigrants, Sue helped to revolutionize California’s raisin industry over 50 years ago.
His legacy lives on into the fourth generation with the introduction of our patented Sweet Sue Golden Raisin. What makes this raisin so revolutionary? The Sweet Sue is the best LOW PRESERVATIVE Golden Raisin. While visually it is just as beautiful as any other Golden Raisin, its flavor is sweet and natural with no noticeable preservative aftertaste.
The Sweet Sue is able to meet all export requirements, has a wonderful golden color, is exceedingly shelf stable and allows everyone to taste the fruit, not the preservative.
