We primarily grow red & black plums in our Orchards. Even though we call a variety black or red, that has no bearing on the inside color or 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 plums!
And don’t forget their most important attributes, the amazing health benefits of Plums. Plums are a very nutritious fruit and are an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants.
