Chinese text: Turpan, Xinjiang Dried Grapes

We have yet another import from the Uyghur homeland of Xinjiang available here in Philadelphia. These are raisins from Turpan, a city particularly well known for its sweet fruit (including grapes and melons). I found these at the newly reborn Heng Fa Market in Chinatown, but I have already seen them elsewhere as well. They are sweet and delicious. So, in addition to figs and melons, we have a slowly growing selection of Xinjiang (or Xinjiang-similar) offerings!
