Our first time trying fresh prunes.

Somehow I grew up thinking dried prunes came from plums...

These prunes were grown in Nagano Prefecture.

The outer flesh was soft and a little bitter.

The inside was sweet.

I'm glad we got to try these and will keep my eye out for more.

I'm just quoting wikipedia but here's what they have to say about prunes:

A prune is a dried plum of any cultivar, mostly the European plum (Prunus domestica). Use of the term "prune" for fresh plums is obsolete except when applied to varieties (of plum) grown for drying.

In Italy fresh plums are either called prugna or susina and dried ones 'prugna secca'

We have those here in Hawaii too but I'm sure not from Nagano. Really sweet.
