They’re incredibly versatile, being used in canning, cooking…and of course sumptuous right off the tree. The flavor is a rich blend of sweetness with a lemon-tart edge that sets it apart from the common taste of other plums.
Not only delicious and versatile, but also beautiful, Italian Plums are medium/large with a dramatic, purple/black skin and green-hued, yellow flesh. When cooked, the juice transforms to a deep red that is a breathtaking addition to culinary dishes.
