We primarily grow red & black plums in our Orchards. Plums have a huge array of flesh and skin colors though. Even though we call a variety back or red, that has no bearing on the inside (flesh) color of flavor. Plums can range in flavor from extremely sweet to slightly tart to very tart. Typically plums are very juicy, and always smooth-skinned. Plums have a naturally occurring thin film called “bloom” on them when on the tree. It’s a light covering of dusty material that helps protect them from the elements. When we pack plums the bloom is removed.
Plums are best enjoyed directly in hand or sliced, however you can certainly eat them in many different ways. Many recipes exist in all categories of dining from appetizers to desserts. In marinades on steak, fish and pork, to salsas, ice cream and in salads. Visit our recipe section to discover many ways to enjoy our peaches!
We invite you to savor the flavor of our amazing fresh plums and bring back memories of picking fresh stone fruit off of a tree in Grandma’s back yard. Make a cobbler, crisp or just slice and enjoy. We guarantee you’ll love it!
