These jumbo prunes are the largest dried plums from California. Naturally sweet and fat free, our delicious jumbo plums are high in potassium and fiber. They are the perfect healthy treat for snacking. Once called prunes, the industry thought switching over to dried plums was a much better approach. We still call these prunes though!

These jumbo plums contain the pit. If you are looking for prunes without the pit, we also carry pitted prunes.

Health Benefits of Jumbo Prunes

1) Antioxidant Powerhouse - Jumbo prunes are an excellent source of antioxidants, the protective compounds which neutralize the effects of damaging free radicals. According to a Tufts University study, dried plums contain even more antioxidants than fresh plums, blueberries, and raisins. Antioxidants are associated with reducing the risk for chronic conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and age-related degenerative diseases.

2) Digestive Remedy - Jumbo plums are packed with insoluble fiber, which adds bulk to the diet and keeps the digestive system running smoothly. Prunes are a well-known treatment for constipation and its not just the fiber content that helps. The sorbitol present in dried plums acts as a natural laxative that softens the stool and improves bowel irregularity.

3) High in Fiber - The insoluble fiber comes from the skin of the dried plum, and the fruit pulp is chock-full of soluble fiber. Both insoluble and soluble fiber are essential for health. Insoluble fiber is a hero when it comes to the digestive system, and soluble fiber offers a host of other health benefits.

By slowing the breakdown of carbohydrates and the uptake of sugar, soluble fiber helps regulate blood sugar. It also reduces the absorption of cholesterol and has been associated with lowering LDL “bad” cholesterol levels. Fiber is also an appetite-suppressant that keeps you feeling full longer to prevent overeating later in the day.

4) Support Bone Health - Eating dried plums may be an effective preventative measure against osteoporosis, a condition in which the bones become weak and fragile. Research from Florida State University showed that women who ate 100 grams of dried plums per day for three months experienced improved bone formation markers. The bone-building mineral boron is found in high quantities in dried plums and may be the reason for these improvements. Prunes are also a good source of potassium, which improves bone strength and offers heart-healthy benefits.

“Yes, as you noticed, I like your plums, and since you asked, I am pleased to write a testimonial.

At first, when my doctor said I should eat prunes regularly, I bought them in stores, but found their quality uneven. Eventually I tried your plums. These were not only fine, but also reminded me of events that happened long ago.

In 1940, at the beginning of World War II, my family and I fled to France which, in less than two months, surrendered to the Germans. At the time, we were in the South of France, and as it remained unoccupied by the Germans, we did not return to our home in Belgium. But now we had food shortages, which rapidly increased. Wine was plentiful here, but normal food was severely rationed. We ate a lot of rutabaga that had been stored for cattle-feed.

In the summer of 1943, Italy surrendered to the Allies, and as my father and I were not far from its border, we crossed the Alps into Italy, along with many other Jewish people. But the soldiers we eventually met there, were not American, but German, and they captured several hundred of us Jews. Fortunately, many of us, including my father and me, were able to retreat up into the mountains.

There, the Germans came up from time to time to fight the partisans. Once we became familiar with the surroundings, we were relatively safe, but we had little money. The local peasants were poor, had no more than two cows, and in the winter slept in the stable with them. Yet, when they saw one of us refugees go by, they would open their door, call him back, and offer some food. And thus we survived.

Cooking was done over an open fire, in a caldron hanging in the chimney of the house. On the first day of the week, it would be filled with water, into which some vegetable was dropped. After cooking, a small part of the soup was eaten. The next day, some additional vegetable, or perhaps meat, was added, and so it went until Sunday, when the concoction was complete. So the locals did it, and so did we.

At times there were small surprises. Something hard, something black, even something hard and black. No matter, all was eaten.

They did not have plums. But your dark plums look very much like what I sometimes discovered when I ate back then in Italy. And so they make me remember, with affection, those people and times.

“I just want everyone to know that your dried fruit is wonderful! For some reason I just can't stand to run out of the dried pineapple. The prunes are great! and girls, they help with bone loss! Eat as many as you can. Of course not too many if you're going to leave the house the next day, smile. The strawberries are just out of this world! There are so many more to try! Don't be afraid to get something you never heard of. Remember there's always the option to trade for something else if you really don't like something! That has not happened to me yet and it probably won't. Thanks guys for everything you do for us and for getting it to us so quickly. Pam”

“Wow! Not only are these prunes large enough to take the place of 3 small ones (our usual portion), they are so sweet and delicious! Highly recommended.”

“The dried plums just arrived. They have been here just long enough for me to enjoy three of them. Delicious is the word of the day. Estelline ”

“This is the first time that I am writing a review. Nuts.com is unbelievable; super fast shipping and superior customer service. They also really do stand behind their 100% satisfaction guarantee. Prunes, pears, almonds, fenugreek seeds, tumeric and cantalope are truly delicious and healthy too. And with that 100% satisfaction guarantee I am not afraid to try something new. A customer for life.”
