Organic Eden Whole Leaf Dulse is a soft, crimson sea vegetable with a tangy flavor that almost melts in your mouth. This wild sea vegetable is hand harvested from cold North Atlantic waters near the mouth of the Bay of Fundy just off the picturesque island of Grand Manan, New Brunswick.
Grand Manan Island is world famous for dulse due to a unique growing environment. High cliffs on the West shade the dulse beds from early sunlight. This, they say, results in the highest quality dulse. Dark Harbour dulse is thicker, darker, and richer in flavor than dulse grown anywhere else. The cold North Atlantic, morning shade, and tidal flow nurturing creates ideal growing conditions for Organic Eden Whole Leaf Dulse. Biologists manage these resources and oversee the hand harvesting to ensure minimal upset to near-shore ecology and a sustainable yield. Pure Organic Eden Whole Leaf Dulse is your best assurance of superior quality.
Organic Eden Whole Leaf Dulse is Organic Crop Improvement Association (OCIA) certified organic and sustainably hand harvested from April through September. Dulsers travel to the island in dories and harvest at low tide. The fronds are spread over nets held up by large flat stones on the beach to dry. The summer sun and sea breeze do their job in about a day and a half reducing moisture to 12 to 15 percent. Allergen notice: This product may contain trace amounts of shellfish.
