Italian Plums, also called plum-prunes (yes, these are what they make dried prunes with) are a late-season stone fruit that appears for just a short time during the month of October. Just sweet enough for eating out-of-hand, these take on a whole new dimension when poached or baked in any way. We will be offering these as add-ons for next week, as there aren’t enough to make another round in the boxes, so look for the updated special price on the web Thursday afternoon.
