Thinking about giving cashmere for the holidays? Try Art Lange's edible kind: thin-sliced, unsulfured dried fruit from ultra-ripe Cashmere nectarines. With intense flavor and sweetness, it's a Prada sweater for the palate. It had better be, at $30 a pound. Florida and Texas dominate the year-end gift fruit market, but California excels in smaller operations that grow and pack with a personal touch.
