Many people associate plums with varying shades of red or purple.  And rightly so.  But did you know that plums can also be yellow?  Yes, indeed, that is so very true.  Additionally, yellow plums are even common in many areas.  In fact, there are several different species of yellow plums.  The Mirabelle plum, the yellow egg plum and the Howard miracle plum are the most prominent species of the yellow plums.

Mostly small in size with typically thin skin, yellow plums contain a relatively high amount of naturally occurring sugar.  Perfect for an active & healthy lifestyle, the yellow plum can be easily brought to work or school.  An afternoon snack to help get you through the midday sugar slump.  Make sure your plums are fully ripe so they can be enjoyed raw . . . providing a high amount of carbohydrates to help boost your energy levels.
