`The Plum Orchard` is a family-owned fruit farm located in Southern Romania, 100 km North of Bucharest.

We sell fresh fruit (plums and apples) suitable for immediate consumption, as well as a raw material for jams, marmelades, sweets recipes and beverages.

We have fruits from the following varieties:

–          Stanley plums – originating from the USA, this it is one of the tastiest varieties; the deep violet-blue skinned fruits cover orange-yellow firm flesh, very sweet and juicy.

–          Anna Spath plums – vigorous trees producing sweet and very juicy fruits. Their skin is purplish pink, with green-yellow flesh inside. Ideal for cooking and marmelade.

–          Idared apples – first developed at the University of Idaho in 1942, it is a cross between two apple varieties (Jonathan and  Wagener). The Idared has a white flesh with a firm body, also very juicy, therefore well suited for making apple sauces, pies and cakes. It is harvested at the end of September to the middle of October. The fruit preserves well until the end of January, and can even last until June in proper storage.

–          Golden Delicious – a large, yellow skinned apple, very sweet to the taste. It is prone to bruising and shriveling, so it needs careful handling and storage. Ideal for deserts, pies and salads.
