How are DOLE Mini Peeled Carrots made?
Mini peeled carrots are made from a whole, full-length carrot. The carrot is cut into 2-inch pieces, peeled, polished, rinsed in ice cold water, and packaged for your added convenience.
Do I have to wash my head of lettuce (bag of carrots, head of cauliflower, asparagus, celery, etc.) or other DOLE Fresh Vegetables before eating?
DOLE Fresh Vegetables are not sold ready-to-eat and should be washed before eating. This does not apply to DOLE Pre-cut Salads or DOLE Mini Peeled Carrots, which have already been washed and are ready-to-eat.

How do I freeze DOLE Fresh Vegetables?
DOLE Fresh Vegetables should be blanched in boiling water for approximately two to four minutes (2-4 minutes) depending upon the size of the vegetables. Drain and place in a pan of ice water. Chill until vegetables are cool in the center. Store DOLE Fresh Vegetables in an airtight freezer bag or container and place in your freezer for later use. We do not recommend freezing DOLE Head Lettuce or DOLE Romaine lettuce.
How can I crisp up my DOLE Celery?
DOLE Celery remains fresh for up to two weeks if kept in a plastic bag and stored in the vegetable chiller of your refrigerator (34°-40°F). DOLE Celery can be soaked in ice cold water for approximately 20 minutes to revive crispness.
What can I do if I am unable to find my favorite DOLE Fresh Vegetable product?
Every effort is made to provide as wide a selection of DOLE products as possible in stores across the country. If you can't find what you are looking for, it is important to let your store manager know. Ask the manager to see if the product can be obtained from the store's warehouse. If it is not available, this is your opportunity to let the store know you would like to be able to purchase it from them. Although we would like to see all of our products carried by every store, regional preferences vary and, as a result, your favorite product may be available only in certain areas.
