Canned Purple Plums are U.S. Grade B or better, whole (unpeeled, unpitted) or halves (unpeeled, pitted).

Plums are packed in unsweetened fruit juice, light syrup, lightly sweetened fruit juice and water, or lightly sweetened fruit juice.


Unopened Canned Plums

Store unopened cans in a cool, dry place off the floor, or in refrigerated storage.

Avoid freezing or sudden changes in temperature. Temperature changes shorten shelf life and speed deterioration of the plums.

Opened Canned Plums

Store opened canned plums in a covered nonmetallic container and refrigerate. Use within 2 to 4 days.
