Plums

Forget those icky, flavorless or bitter grocery store plums, and open your mind (and tastebuds!) to the amazing variety of colors, shapes, flavors, and textures of locally-grown plums. You're likely to become addicted!

  • A few of our plum varieties routinely show up at farmers' markets. Many of the varieties, however, are in relatively limited quantities, and will go into the CSA Fruit Share first.

Imperial Epineuse

Very sweet with a rich and addictive flavor. A famous French variety grown extensively at one point in California for the production of prunes. Used at the National Fruit Trials in England as a standard of comparison for other plums. Circa 1870. Ripens in late July.
