We have been getting a great supply of Pluots in our Fruit and Vegetable store in NJ.
Just picked up about 6 juicy and delicious ones the other day! My dad cuts them up over a glass so he can drink the juice he collects! Hope yours come in soon.

Picked up some fine ones today.

I somewhere recently read a reference to the plum as a lowly fruit - common, ordinary, taking a back seat to more exotic ones.
Like: How can we make the Plum more interesting/ attractive?


This was new to me.
Is this really the way people think of plums?

I think this is mostly a marketing "need"...

Companies are always looking for a "new" image to put on their product so the can interest the buying public into (hopefully) buying more...

I keep looking for some good red plums, but most of what I find in the stores are white inside...

I was thinking about you and your "plum love!"  Yesterday in a local supermarket (Shop-Rite for those in NJ area) I purchased some absolutely delicious purple plums.  The label says "biologique organic" USA. They were ripe and ready to eat-probably because few shoppers were willing to pay the price per pound! It couldn't have been that high because I bought them!!
My dad (84) and unaware of it's origin thought it was the best plum he had eaten so far this year!

Come to think of it, a nice ripe plum all chopped up is kinda like jelly.  


Yes!

But, unlike jelly, you can't eat it 8 months later...

Here's a new Australian hybrid (cherry and plum) to roll out in Europe and Turkey next year: Nadia.

Meanwhile I'm enjoying many varieties of plum and "pluot". I like the "pomegranate pluots" I bought last week, as well as some other varieties.

They're back!

Red plums, the first local ones of the season, were at my Whole Foods a couple of days ago, so I filled a bag.............
Earlier season this year than last. Maybe we're in for a good season!

i'll have to check tonight. I'm stuck home with some sort of sinus/respiratory issue. On the other hand I took the leftover and frozen rosemary dijon marinated turkey breast and combined it with onion, garlic, chills, and purple rice so I have plenty of provisions.

Crazy thing -- I'm eating one right now that tastes like....almonds!
Same family....But this is a first for me...slightly vanilla-y.

Local organic plums abound!

The way to eat just one (and no more!) is to sweeten some Greek yogurt and serve it with that plum (sliced); the fat gives it staying power.
