Frieda's Specialty Produce - Sugar Plums

Overview

What is a Sugar Plum?

  • Sugar Plums are exceptionally sweet California-grown plums. Unlike the common round (or Japanese-style) plums, Sugar Plums are a special European plum hybrid with an oval shape and a super-sweet flesh. European plums also have much less acid in them, particularly in the skin, which gives them a sweeter taste than the sweet-tart skin of a Japanese plum. What makes them even better is their pits are easy to remove. After one luscious bite of this special plum, you’ll wonder why you’ve never tasted them before!
