Refrigerated(Overnight) Pickles are fresh cucumbers that are harvested, washed, graded, and then rushed to the production floor where they are packed directly into containers, covered with flavorings, and immediately refrigerated.
Processed Pickles are fresh cucumbers that have been harvested from the field, and placed into large storage tanks and covered with a salt brine solution. This solution effectively begins a fermentation process that cures the cucumber into a pickle. After the curing period these pickles are then sent to production where they are carefully desalted, washed, sorted, and packed with a dill, sour, or sweet brine flavor. These pickles are crisp and generally darker in color than Fresh Pack Pickles.
Fresh Pack Pickles are fresh cucumbers that are harvested, washed, graded, and then rushed to the production floor where they are packed directly into containers, covered with flavorings, and pasteurized.
There is no difference other than the label. We manufacture both brands in Fort Worth, TX with the same cucumbers, the same flavorings, and the same ingredients. We bought the Del-Dixi brand several decades ago, and consolidated flavor profiles while retaining the brand.
We realize the prices are higher than what you will find in a grocery store, but there are substantial costs involved in being able to make them available online.
We sell our products to retail chain grocery stores, food distributors, and restaurants. Please visit our Where to Buy page.
