Plums come in a rainbow of reds, purples, and almost black. Their size, shape and color vary with variety. They have a deep, sweet taste with an edible slightly tangy skin. Enjoy while fresh in season or make some jam to savor the harvest all year long!

Plums are part of the stone fruit family, which includes peaches, nectarines and cherries. Fresh plums have vitamin C, vitamin K, copper, potassium, and fiber in strong amounts. Interestingly, dried plums have become popular again as the name “prune” has officially been changed to dried plums.

Plums have a deep, sweet taste with an edible tangy skin - summer in a sweet little package!
