  3. I love this fruit. Around here in Germany, they are mostly only sold from autumn to the end of winter, and never in another way than the simple fruit, mostly imported from Israel, sometimes from Spain.
    Good to know for probably finding the dried ones in the web. But I fear, they will be expensive, because they are sold as raw fruit with about 0,80 € per piece.

    Thank you for following 🙂
