Meet your new favorite fruit - the Plumsicle
On a hot day in June we harvested our first Plumsicle of the season. This proprietary fruit is available only from HMC Farms and is unlike any other. It is refreshingly juicy and surprisingly flavorful. It has an intense sweetness that has a flavor not far from a gummy candy or a Popsicle (hence the name). From the moment we first tasted it we knew it was the perfect addition to our family of fruits. Taste, above all else, is how we determine which new varieties we will plant in the upcoming season.
The Plumsicle is a firmer plum with an interior that ranges from a yellowish red to a deep purple. The exterior is speckled and maroon with shades of green. It will not win any beauty pageants, but luckily, it is what's on the inside that counts.
You can distinguish our Plumsicle from other plums and plumcots by the colorful packaging, and can look for it by name on the PLU sticker.
