Raisin is quite a broad, generic term for a dried white grape. In the past most raisins would contain a few seeds because seedless grapes were uncommon. Now, raisins are usually seedless.
A delicious exception are Muscatel grape raisins, which are large and light, with some of the scented character of the fresh fruit and a tiny seed or two. Lexia raisins are an extra-large Muscatel raisin.
