What is a prune?

A prune is a dried plum. All prunes are plums but not all plums can be prunes. The California Prune was created in the 19th Century from the La Petite d’Agen, a French plum variety that fully ripens on the tree without fermenting prior to harvesting.


What does a prune taste like?

Like a fine wine, a quality prune should have depth. Think fruity with notes of chocolate, honey, and caramel. Our prunes taste that way because we harvest them at peak ripeness, when they’re at optimal Brix (aka sugar content). It takes a seasoned farmer to understand when to harvest. With over 100 years of experience under our boots, we time it just right.


Do you use preservatives in your organic prunes?

No preservatives are used in Taylor Brothers Farms Organic Prunes.

Are prunes safe to eat if pregnant?

Prunes can combat constipation and iron deficiency. They are often recommended to women as a nutritious snack during pregnancy. However, over-eating prunes can cause unpleasant gastric disorders (like flatulence and bloating). Please consult your physician before adding prunes to your regular diet.


Are prunes safe to eat if diabetic?

Prunes are low-glycemic, meaning they do not spike blood sugar levels like other dried fruit. They are also high in soluble fibre, which slows the rate at which food leaves the stomach and, as a result, delays the absorption of sugar into the blood stream. Harvard Medical School reports the glycemic index for one serving of unsweetened dried prunes (60 grams, or about six prunes) is 29. While prunes are low-gylcemic, please consult your physician before adding prunes to your regular diet.
