Fill Four Full Trays With Fruit
On Your Dehydrator
An Easy Guide for Fruit
To fill four full trays of fruit, now that you have your dehydrator
ready, it does help to know how much fruit to purchase at the store if
your budget doesn't allow for buying in bulk.
Most of us do not have tons of spare room in our fridges and
Before you go out buying too much, here's a handy guide
that shows how much fruit will fit on four dehydrator trays.
Please remember this is just a guide. It's not an exact science...
F R U I T
- Apples: fresh, 3-4 medium
- Apricots: fresh, 5 whole per tray (20 total); frozen, 2lb bag
- Bananas: fresh, 6-8 medium to large
- Berries: fresh or frozen, 2lb
- Cherries: fresh or frozen, 2lb
- Grapes: fresh, 1lb if cut in half; 2lb if left whole
- Citrus: 4-5 medium oranges,
7-8 lemons or limes
- Melon: 2lbs diced
- Peaches: fresh, 4 whole if slicing; 16 whole if
halving – but please note: you may have to use an Excalibur machine
which has the ability to remove alternate trays to allow for the height
of the peach, so that would drop the quantity down to 8 and two trays;
- Pears: fresh, 4-6 whole pears; frozen, 2lb
- Plums: fresh, 24-28 whole, sliced in half – but please
note: you may have to use an Excalibur machine which has the ability to
remove alternate trays to allow for the height of the plums, so that
would drop the quantity down to 12-14 and two trays; frozen, 2lb
- Rhubarb: fresh, 2lbs sliced into 1" chunks
- Strawberries: fresh, 1-1/2 to 2lbs; frozen, 2lbs

As mentioned in the dehydrator section, I do have an Excalibur dehydrator and a Nesco dehydrator.
I use the Nesco on a daily/weekly basis, and the Excalibur is great for proofing bread!
