This is an excellent European style plum with dark purple skin and light yellow-green flesh. Delightfully sweet- these are excellent on their own or enjoy in a tart, galette or cake.
The stone separates easily from the flesh, like a free stone peach.
Bill and Andrea at Champlain Orchards grow both organic fruits and and minimally sprays fruit where production is too difficult.
They specialize in apple products and have figured out how to store apples so even a Mac tastes like it's right off the tree in April! Their apple crop as well as their stone fruit crops are minimally sprayed to manage pests in an integrated practice with natural methods.
Fruits not indicated as Organic are minimally sprayed.
They are great for cooking in tarts or in Zwetschekuchen, a tasty German plum cake.
Store in the refrigerator.
