Mount Lassen Farms Sugar Plums

The Sugar Plum needs no introduction. Its appearance is that of a gigantic purple grape. It is one of the few plums with a non-bitter skin. Your first bite will give way to an incredible fruit full of character. 

  Product Description:

Its golden flesh is followed by nature’s second honey that comes rushing forward to greet your taste buds with every bite. This fruit's sugar at harvest ranges from 18% to 25%, and it has been said "the rays of the sun have been captured and stored beneath the flesh of this singular fruit to only be set free when tasted." 

 

 

 

Supplies are limited. Fresh Sugar Plums are normally available the last week of July and the first two weeks of August.

Note: Since fresh fruit is perishable, only Next Day or Second Day delivery orders can be accepted.
