What do you know about me?

  •  Plums belong to the Prunus genus of plants and relatives of the peach, nectarine, and almond.
  • They are considered as "Drupes"- fruits with a hard stone pit surrounding their seeds.
  • Antioxidant protection.
  • Vitamin C, K, A, potassium, and fiber.
  • Plums increases excellent iron absorption into the body.
  • Protects against Macular Degeneration (eyesight).
  • Protects your heart (medium size plum contains 113mg of potassium).
  • Regulate your bowels.
  • Lower blood sugar.
  • Boost Bone Health (about 10 prunes).
  • Improve memory (3-4 prunes a day neutralize cell damaging free radicals).

I come in various sizes and rich colors
I'm so naturally SWEET!

I can be eaten dried and still have a nutritional value
      Above all, plums and dried plums "prunes" are very nutritional for the body.  You receive the most antioxidants when consuming plums that are fully ripened.  Avoid plums that are excessively hard.  Good quality plums will be rich in color and have a slight whitish bloom.  Plums can be left at room temperature if they are not ripe.  Remove pits if you are putting them in the freezer.  If plums have been in the refrigerator, allow them to be at room temperature before eating.  Try to look for unsulphured dried prunes (no additives).
