The Benefits of Plums

SweatTheStyle_PlumsStone Fruit is officially in season and we are super excited about it! From cherries to peaches to plums, some of the sweetest, tastiest tree grown food are stone fruits. Of the three fruits, plums are the most unique. Plums contain a unique antioxidant that is effective at neutralizing a particularly harmful type of free radical. Plums are also a low-calorie fruit with a low glycemic index and contain useful amounts of vitamin C, which fortifies the body’s defenses against infection and increases the amount of energy-giving iron that we absorb from food.

Plums come in various colors ranging from black to purple, red, yellow, and everything in between. Plums are generally in season in the United States from the end of May all the way into October. California is the number one producer of plums in the United States and therefore ship plums all over the country. California plums start to ripen in late May and the season goes until around the start of September, so you have a few more months to enjoy as many plums as you can!
