Dried Plum Products
California Prune Plums are a very versatile fruit available in retail stores in various forms including:
- Pitted Dried Plums
- Whole Dried Plums
- Prune Juice
- Fresh Plum Juice
- Fresh Prune Plums
Dried Plums are packed in bags, cartons and canisters with Prune Juice available in bottles and cans and Fresh Plum Juice in bottles.
Dried Plums can usually be found with other dried fruits in the produce section, the canned fruit section or the baking section. If you can’t find them, ask the store personnel. Prune Juice and Fresh Plum Juice can be found in the bottled and canned juice section. Fresh Prune Plums are only available in the produce section of a limited number of stores during the August/September harvest period.
Dried Plums are “ready-to-eat" right from the package as a healthful snack or can be used as a versatile cooking or baking ingredient. They do not require refrigeration but once the package has been opened, close it and store it under cool, dry conditions. Sealing the unused dried plums in an airtight container and storing them in your refrigerator will help keep them moist and juicy.
