(1) "Select” size raisins means that not less than 30 percent, by weight, of all the raisins will not pass through round perforations 3464 inch in diameter; and the balance will pass through round perforations 344 inch in diameter but not more than 5 percent, by weight, of all the raisins may pass through round perforations 2464 inch in diameter.

(2) "Small” (or “midget”) size raisins means that all of the raisins will pe 's through round perforations 3464 inch in diameter and not less than 90 percent, by weight, of all the raisins will pass through round perforations 2464 inch in diameter.

(3) "Mixed” size raisins means a mixture of sizes that do not meet the requirements of "select” size.

(b) Unseeded. (1) "4 Crown" means raisins that will not pass through round perforations 4464 inch in diameter.
