ONTARIO PLUMS

Plums range in shape and flavours vary from sweet to slightly tart. Ontario plums are either of Japanese or European descent. All are fine for eating, with the European prune types also well suited to cooking.

Yellow and red plums are descended from Japanese plums; the blue plums and blue prunes are forms of European plums.

The Early Golden variety is Ontario's most popular yellow plum, followed closely by the Shiro. Both are round, firm-fleshed with yellow skin. Major red varieties are Burbank, Ozark Premier and Vanier.

Popular eating plums are Bluefre, California Blue, Valor (medium to large size, blue skin, bright yellow flesh), Voyageur (smaller, yellow flesh, purple skin) Verity, Veeblue and Victory (dark purple skin, orange flesh).
