Plums



Plums are delicious and are a fabulous addition to any home orchard. Here are the plums no home should go without – pick one of these plums fresh from the tree and you will never turn back.

 

 

Plums are low in fat, calories, cholesterol and sodium, and they are high in carbohydrates. Plums are a very healthy fruit – they are a great source of vitamin A and C as well as calcium, fibre, iron, magnesium, and potassium.

Blood-red, red and yellow flesh plums will deliver varying degrees of sweetness and tartness. Easy to grow, the natural habit of the plum tree is multi-branched and will usually reach about 4m x 4m at maturity.
