All Prunes are Plums, but not all Plums are Prunes. Prunes are Plums that have been grown and cultivated for drying. While the terms “Dried Plum” and “Prune” are used interchangeably, the FDA agreed to officially change the name to Dried Plums to attract a larger audience.
Did you know?
- In 1905, a severe shortage of labor hit California. One farmer had the brilliant idea of harvesting the Prunes using the help of monkeys. 500 monkeys were divided into groups of 50, and led by a human foreman, harvested the crop. Unfortunately, the monkeys not only picked the fruit, but ate it as well!
- It takes approximately three pounds of fresh Plums to make one pound of dried fruit. That’s Plum crazy!
We can source Prunes in the following formats:
