I had these for the first time this season shipped to me from Frog Hollow Farm in California. Expensive, but there are no good plums being grown in this area of CT. They were absolutely fantastic and by far the best plums (I know I know, it’s a cross but it looks like a plum!) I’ve had in the US, only rivaled by the plums I’ve had in southern Italy where my parents were born. Boy do I wish this is what plums at the store regularly tasted like! The only good ones I can find occasionally are Shiros at a few of the better farmers markets. I bought a Green Gage this year, which is notoriously finicky and stingy even in the areas it is famous (France, Italy) but a ripe Green Gage in Italy is among the best fruits on earth.
