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.

Mirabelle

Very sweet, this variety is so small you can pop them in your mouth and eat them like cherries (the tiny pits come out very easily). A traditional European variety used in plum tarts and other confections, and used in France to make brandy. Circa 1790. Ripens in late August.

Moyer

Ripens in late September.

Mt. Royal

Delightful and sweet flavor. A European plum good for both cooking and fresh eating, as well as drying to make prunes. Originated as a chance seedling found near Montreal. Ripens in mid-August.
