There are few fruits that come in such a panorama of colors as the juicy sweet tasting plum. Plums belong to the Prunus genus of plants and are relatives of the peach, nectarine and almond. They are all considered ‘drupes’, fruits that have a hard stone pit surrounding their seeds. When plums are dried, they are known as prunes. Plums contain phenols which are great antioxidants and greatly improve our blood quality. Plums also help the body absorb iron as well as other key vitamins. Mix plums into your weekly repertoire of fruits and get more of what you eat!
