In Season Hog Plums | Barbados

A sweet delicious aroma, reminiscent of summer days and joyous times fill the air, as all around the island the delicious hog plum fruit changes colour and begins to ripen. Hog plums are a West Indian favourite and can only be found in tropical climates. The thick, smooth yellow or red skin of the hog plum fruit protects it’s soft, sweet fleshy center, which surrounds a smooth seed beneath. The hog plum has often been dubbed the healing fruit, as it is said to be a great natural remedy in the treatment of many ailments such as colds, rashes, stomach pains and even sore throats. This amazing fruit is not only delicious but also a great addition to your everyday diet! Be sure to give into temptation and try these tasty plums while they’re still in season
