Champlain Orchards Plums
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.
Store in the refrigerator.
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 sprayed fruit where production is too difficult.
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.

We love these plums that are sweet with the tart skin. We let them sit on the counter for a few days until they feel soft to the squeeze and then they are perfect for eating. An easy, healthy snack.

These plums are amazing -- and tiny! Just pop one in your mouth, and let your tongue navigate the pit away from the sweet juicy flesh and the tart skin. Then spit out the pit and enjoy that plummy flesh.
I have an elderly (100 this year) neighbor who loves her fruit and has declared these to be her absolute favorite. She's got good taste!

Plums have always been my favorite, and these are extra good. Just wish they had a longer season! We tend to eat these so quickly I never get a chance to bake with them. I'm sure they'd be excellent.

These are amazing! Plums are already one of my all-time favorite fruits, but these are the best of the best. Often this style of plum can be dry and bland, but these are incredibly sweet and juicy with a strong plummy flavor. You might want to try one first before cooking with them - they're so sweet you may need to seriously cut down on the sugar in your recipe.
