Plums: Prune


1 lb

Italian Prune plums have a dense consistency and a sweet, fruity flavor well suited for fresh eating, cooking, or drying. The fresh fruits may be used similarly to other plum varieties. Prune plums also transition into bright fuschia shades when cooked, contributing to a visually appealing aesthetic. Click on this item to see the full description.

Description: Italian Prune plums have a snappy, semi-firm texture when raw, and as the fruits are cooked, they develop a jammy, creamy consistency. The flesh is also known for its low water content and high sugar content, creating a mild, fruity taste with citrus nuances. When Italian Prune plums are cooked, they develop a rich, sugary-sweet flavor and transition into a bright pink hue.

Italian Prune plums are a good source of potassium to balance fluid levels within the body, vitamin C to strengthen the immune system, and fiber to regulate the digestive tract. The fruits also contain calcium to protect bones and teeth, vitamin K to assist in faster wound healing, vitamin A to maintain healthy organ functioning, and lower amounts of manganese and copper.

They can be consumed straight out of hand, tossed into salads, sliced for cheese plates, diced into slaws, fruit bowls, and salsa, or blended into smoothies, but their drier flesh will create a texture distinct from other plum varieties. Italian Prune plums are most commonly utilized in baked applications as the fruits hold their shape well and develop concentrated flavors. Italian Prune plums can be baked into pies, crumbles, cakes, dumplings, turnovers, and tarts, or they can be simmered into jams, jellies, and compotes.

Storage: Keep refrigerated. 

Weavers Orchard

Weaver’s Orchard’s family farming began with Jacob and Lizzie Weaver. They were fruit growers in Delaware whose son, Daniel, purchased the current Berks county property. He started Weaver’s Orchard in 1931, with little inkling of what the orchard would become. He planted fruit trees, berries and vegetables and marketed the produce by the truckload on street corners in the city of Reading. At the time, this was known as a “Huckster route,” which meant he was a type of produce peddler common in those days. Soon he started selling from the farm and set Weaver’s Orchard on the path to becoming a community destination. Daniel’s son Allen became a partner in the operation and the business continued to grow as they marketed the produce through farmers markets and on the farm. Weaver’s wants the property to be one people can come and enjoy as they pick their own fruit or shop the farm market, attend parties and events, including corporate events, educational opportunities and family-friendly experiences on the farm. The Weaver family’s vision for the business CONTINUES to expand, with hopes of a new market some day that will an expanded garden center, bakery and more events like farm to table dinners.
