How long does candied fruit last?

unopened with safety seal still attached, how long does the candied fruit you use for fruitcake last? there is no expiration date on my candied lemon packages.

(and please keep the 5 year old fruitcake jokes to a minimum. lol)


The fruit is dried, candied and still sealed, so it should last at least two years, provided it was stored away from heat.


u can eat it. theres no wurrys .


I always seems to have some left over from the year before and I use it. I make fruit cake muffins from it every Christmas and every body loved them and lived.

The fact that yours is still sealed is a bonus. Taste it and make sure. I think it will be fine.

Good luck!
