Details

The juiciest fruit in the stone fruit family, plums come in many different varieties, some sweet, some slightly more tart. All plums however have certain characteristics in common, with smooth, richly coloured skins and a hard central stone.

Plums vary in hue from deep purple to red, yellow and green. The cloudy bloom on their skin is natural and isn’t an indication of poor quality. All sweet dessert plums can be used for cooking, too.

Description

The ability of plums and prunes to increase absorption of iron into the body has also been documented in published research. This ability of plums and prunes to make iron more available may be related to the vitamin C content of this fruit. Our food ranking system qualified plums as a very good source of vitamin C.  As with other members of the “drupe” family fruits, plum also features a centrally placed single, smooth, flat, but hard pit. Seeds are inedible.

A typical 100g portion contains 11.42g cabohydrate, 0.28g fat, 1.4g fibre and 46 calories.
