Plums are a great compliment to our apples and peaches.  Sweet to the taste!

 

Plums are used in a variety of recipes, canning, and juicing.  They are a great alternative to peaches and have a sweet and subtle flavor.

Empress plums are also know as European plums.  They have a deep blue, slightly purple skin and yellow flesh.  These plums are tasty, but mostly used for drying.  They are available from late August through September.
