Prune

Search Prune
Certain varieties of plums have such firm flesh and such a high sugar content that they can be dried with little loss of their original plumpness and flavor. These plums are called prune-plums, and the dried plums themselves are called prunes.  

Plums are divided into three groups--European, Japanese, and native North American--based on their geographic origins. European plums include the familiar blue fruits commonly found which are widely grown in NZ. The tart damson plums, from which jams and jellies are made, belong to this group, as do the firm sweet varieties that are dried to make prunes.
