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.

Rosy Gage

They have a wonderful lingering flavor that makes them very addictive, They sweeten as they soften, and it takes no more than a day or two for them to develop their full, rich flavor and texture. Developed recently at Cornell. Ripens in mid-August.

Rubysweet

Red-fleshed and bursting with juice. An Asian-type plum developed by Dr. Dick Okie, USDA, Byron, Georgia. Ripens in mid-July.
