Oppy is bringing lemon plums to the North American market the first week of February through to mid-March 2023. Limited volumes of the specialty item will arrive on the east coast for a select niche market.

 “Many still call it the volcano plum because it looks like lava is pouring down its sides when the red colouring starts to present itself,” said Oppy sales manager Carl Immenhausen. “Their skin blushes as they ripen, so there is no guesswork about when to eat them.”

Named for their harvest colour, not their flavour, lemon plums are tear-drop shaped, sweet-tasting and juicy.

“It’s a fun and different variety to bring home. Consumers love watching it change colour from yellow to red, and enjoying a unique summertime flavour during the winter months,” shared Immenhausen.

Packed in a high-graphic, one-pound pouch bag, the pack includes a ripening process chart to help educate and excite shoppers to try this unique piece of fruit.
