Why eat plums?

  • Each small plum contains only 30 calories, which can easily be burned off with just a 6-minute walk.
  • Even though they taste very sweet, plums have a low glycemic index, making them suitable for diabetics.
  • Plums have a "bloom" which is a natural wax coating the fruit produces to keep its skin from losing water. Be sure to look out for the dusty-white coating to ensure a ripe plum!
